What are some good Jobs that don't require alot of standing?

I have painful arthritis in my feet,knees and hips. I have been a sahm for a few years now and would like to go out into the working world this fall when my son starts school full time.
The problem is I can't be on my feet for more then an hour at a time without the pain getting so severe I want to cry.
In the past I worked in school nutrition or cleaned houses..back then I could work on my I can't and need to know what is out there for a person who NEEDS to sit...can no longer be on my feet

  • Anything in an office will involve minimal standing--do you have any computer skills? I sit on my butt all day long as a paralegal--you could try for a receptionist or secretary position.

  • SAHMs have lots of skills that employers value, like time management, logistics, budgeting, etc. You probably have also done some volunteer work.

    I do career and job search coaching; I will be happy to help you with your resume, cover letters, job search strategy, etc. Feel free to send me a message offlist.
