How does one get invited to the Quora Partner Program? What criteria do they use, or is it completely random?
I live in Germany. I got an invite to the Quora partner program the day I landed in USA for a business trip. So from what I understand, irrespective of the number of views on your answers, there is some additional eligibility criteria for you to even get an email invite.If you read the terms of service, point 1 states:Eligibility. You must be located in the United States to participate in this Program. If you are a Quora employee, you are eligible to participate and earn up to a maximum of $200 USD a month. You also agree to be bound by the Platform Terms (https://www.quora.com/about/tos) as a condition of participation.Again, if you check the FAQ section:How can other people I know .participate?The program is invite-only at this time, but we intend to open it up to more people as time goes on.So my guess is that Quora is currently targeting people based out of USA, who are active on Quora, may or may not be answering questions frequently ( I have not answered questions frequently in the past year or so) and have a certain number of consistent answer views.Edit 1: Thanks to @Anita Scotch, I got to know that the Quora partner program is now available for other countries too. Copying Anuta’s comment here:If you reside in one of the Countries, The Quora Partner Program is active in, you are eligible to participate in the program.” ( I read more will be added, at some point, but here are the countries, currently eligible at this writing,) U.S., Japan, Germany, Spain, France, United Kingdom, Italy and Australia.11/14/2018Edit 2 : Here is the latest list of countries with 3 new additions eligible for the Quora Partner program:U.S., Japan, Germany, Spain, France, United Kingdom, Italy, Canada, Australia, Indonesia, India and Brazil.Thanks to Monoswita Rez for informing me about this update.

How can someone who’s just retired (and loves to work) fill their time?
I may not be a good example, I’m self-employed (I’m an artist), I love to work so I just keep on working – “retirement” means nothing to me. But for people who work regular jobs, retirement can be quite challenging, you can suddenly feel useless and unwanted.I’d suggest you take a good look at your strengths – the things you know and the skills you have that might be valuable to others or to the community at large. All you have to do is type “volunteer” and the name of your city into Google and you’ll find DOZENS of opportunities to contribute and make a difference.You may be at a point in life where you don’t want to put in an eight-hour workday five days a week, but what you’ve learned from a lifetime of experience can be a priceless gift to those who are following in your footsteps. And I think you’ll find that especially for older folk, knowing that you’ve contributed to someone else’s growth can be an enormously satisfying experience – whether it’s tutoring a third-grade kid in arithmetic or teaching a teenager how to work on cars or just listening without judgment to an elderly patient dealing with a serious illness.Before retirement, you probably just had one or two jobs. After retirement, you can have dozens, and you can choose the ones that best suit you. Don’t waste your best years just sitting around waiting to grow old and die! Get involved volunteering with your community for the best job of your life.
How do you find out if a company is open to using a staffing agency to fill positions?
Get an introduction to the target company through a referral if possible.  A lot of the companies that retain us even talk explicitly about "no agency referrals" on their website.  There are times that going in through HR or their staffing org can be to your benefit but more often that not it helps to have a referral with a "VP" in their title to get you that introduction.  You might still be a long way from getting a fee agreement signed (retained or contingent) but you'll be a lot close than being one of the hundreds of agency recruiters leaving voicemails for the VP HR or Staffing Manager.
