10 Great Paying Careers That Do Not Require a College Degree


Difficult to fathom, but there is a ton of great jobs that don’t require a lick of college. In other words, you are not out of luck if you didn’t attend school. Here’s a rundown of the best gigs without the need of a degree…

1.  Dental hygienist.  Clearly not everyone can do it.  You got to get two-years under your belt in clinical training, plus you’ll need a license. But still, $70,000 isn’t bad at all!

2.  Registered nurse.  Just a two-year degree is all you need, but after that…$65,000 a year in your pocket!

3.  Web developer. You gotta teach you way around the back end of websites, which in itself is 4 years of learning, but a $62,000 annual salary awaits if you can do it!

4.  Respiratory therapist.  Wanna help people with asthma or lung diseases? It only requires a two-year degree and national certification and pays $56,000.

5.  Electrician.  You will need a license and the know-how, but with that a $50,000 salary is nothing to scoff at!

6.  Computer service technician. Another gig that requires a ton of knowledge with computers. But plenty of us know how to do it on their own, and can make $49,000.

7.  Paralegal.  Honestly? It’s whom you know in this field. No college skills required. Just get in and it will pay about $47,000.

8.  Appliance repairer.  Pick up this skill, bank almost $44,000 on average.

9.  Carpenter.  It’s all in what you know.  On average, make around $40,000.

10.  Auto body technician.  Do you like to fix cars? You can learn as you work, it pays on average about $38,000 a year.
