TOP 5 HIGH PAYING JOBS 💸 NO COLLEGE REQUIRED ❌🎓

– So in this video today,
we’re gonna be talking about five high-paying
jobs that do not require any kind of formal college education. I know a lot of people
out there are insisting on going to college and
getting some kind of degree, but for those of you that
are saying, you what, maybe I don’t want to go into debt and take out student loans, what are some good options
for jobs you could get with just a high school diploma? That’s what we’re gonna
talk about in this video, The Top Five Jobs You
Can Get and at the end, we’re gonna include seven
more jobs if you guys are looking for more ideas. Now you’ll find that a lot
of people end up deciding to go off and work at
a fast food restaurant or they work in retail and I honestly wanna discourage that because that’s gonna be a very low-paying job for yourself. And it might take you a little bit longer to find a better paying
job than maybe a $10 an hour job working at
some fast food restaurant, but you know, if you your due diligence, and research and really
spend some time looking for high quality jobs, it is possible to find a
really good quality job just with a high school diploma. It is gonna take you longer
to actually get hired at that job, but it’s gonna
be worth it when you’re able to make significantly more money. So at all costs, I would say avoid working either fast food or retail. So number one on the list is
a Postal Service Mail Carrier. Their salary is around $51,000
and that was back in 2011 so this job probably pays
more than that does today. But if you wanna work
for the postal service, you don’t actually need to have any kind of formal college education. Now, because this is a public sector job, you do have to take
that civil service exam to actually be eligible for that job, but there’s a lot of
postal carriers out there that are making over $50,000 per year. Many of them do not have any kind of formal college education. One thing you might want take note of though is jobs like this, typically those who do have some kind of college education, well
those people are going to take precedence over those who do not. So do consider that, if
there is somebody who applies for that job who has a college degree, well they’re probably going to get it just because they have skills above and beyond what you do for that line of duty. Okay, number two on the
list here is working as a Correctional Officer. Now this is not going to
be a glamorous job at all. You’re going to have
to have very thick skin to do this job, but it
is an essential part of our civilized lives today
and a correctionals officer is basically in charge of
prisons and people inside them. So yes, it’s gonna be a
dangerous, confrontational job but as a result, it does pay pretty well. So in 2012, the average
correctional officer made a salary of around $43,500, so
definitely not a bad job there in terms of that salary. But this is, again, not a job that’s going to be for everyone. Now there are both
private and public prisons in the United States. If it’s a public sector job, again, you’re gonna have to take
that civil service exam, I would imagine, but if you are look to
work for a private prison, that might not be the case. And, again, those that do
have a college education of some kind are mostly
likely going to take priority when getting hired and
they’re probably gonna be starting out at a higher pay and a better position within that prison. Okay, number three on list is
again, a very important job. It’s a very important part
of our civilized lives today, and that is working as a
Transportation Security Officer. So when you go to the
airport and you’re getting your bag scanned and you’re getting your boarding pass checked, you are looking at a
transportation security officer and those jobs actually
pay surprisingly well. So the average transportation
security officer or TSA employee is making
around $40,000 and that was back in 2016, so it’s
probably around that today. But as far as jobs that don’t
require any college education, this is not a bad gig at all. And you’re also doing something
that is very important and helping protect the
safety of people’s lives. So it’s a very important
job and a lot of people would really be proud
to do a job like that. Now, number four is not
actually a job per se, but it’s more or less an
opportunity to make money for people that are more entrepreneurial. So let’s say you don’t
have a college education, but you want to be making decent money, you don’t wanna be a fast food worker. You do have an option here of starting a digital marketing agency. Now basically what you would be doing is helping small businesses
with Facebook ads and their social media presence. So obviously, yes, you’re
going to need some skills above and beyond a high school education, but these days, you can
learn a lot online for free. There’s online courses that will teach you digital marketing, and so it is a really
interesting opportunity, especially for young people, and I personally know multiple people who have digital marketing agencies that are making over $100,000 per year. In fact, on average, when
you take on a client, you’re looking at about $1,000 per month. So you only need a handful
of clients and you’re gonna be making a significant amount of money with your marketing agency. Now if you guys are
interested in learning more about that, I did an
interview with Kevin David. This is exactly what he
does is he shows people how to start their own digital
marketing agencies. So I’ll link that video up
down in the description below if you guys want more information on that. And then fifth and
finally on our list here, we have an Air Traffic Controller. This is one of the highest
paying jobs out there at a salary of around $122,000. Now while this job does not require a formal college education, it requires you to go through the FAA’s Air Traffic Collegiate
Training Initiative Program. So you are gonna have to
go through formal schooling but it is not a college degree. And it’s going to gear you
specifically for this job. Now this is one of the most stressful jobs that you can have is being
an Air Traffic Controller, so personally I would not
recommend this as your first pick if you’re just looking
to make a lot of money. But if you are interested
in this line of work, it does pay extremely well at over $120,000 per year on average. But anyways, guys, that’s
gonna wrap up this video. Those are five high-paying
jobs that require no college degree of any kind. If you guys ae looking for more ideas, I actually have a companion
article over on my blog, which is 12 different
ways to make good money without a college education. So if you guys are looking for basically seven more ideas above and beyond this, the link for that blog article is down in the description below.
