Lots of High Paying Jobs Don’t Require Degrees, This infographic Lists Some of Them

Not all that long ago people assumed that in order to get a good job you absolutely had to get a degree beforehand because of the fact that this is the sort of thing that could potentially end up training you and making you capable of dealing with the rigors of this job in the first place. With all of that having been said and now out of the way, it is important to note that this notion is slowly starting to go away.

College has become extremely expensive, and this has resulted in people looking into other kinds of jobs that might not require them to have a degree. Some of these jobs pay really high salaries indeed. For example, commercial airline pilots only need a high school diploma. They then have to go through a fair amount of on the job training, after which they can start earning a six figure salary. While not all jobs that don’t require degrees pay as much as commercial pilot jobs, there are dozens of them that pay well over $50,000 per year which is more than enough to support yourself especially when you don’t have any student loans that you need to pay off.

Another excellent option would involve becoming a transportation or distribution manager. These jobs pay over $90,000 a year and don’t require any on the job training although you will have to work your way up the ranks by showing people how hard you are willing to work. If you want some more job options that can help you earn a decent income despite not going to college, check out the infographic we have featured below (which comes courtesy of U.S. Career Institute). It has 80 different jobs, none of which require a degree and all of which pay over $50,000.
