This Video is the worst video for the title. How could you even title this with "9 Highest Paying Jobs Without A College Degree (2019)", when most of the jobs require at least an associates degree from a college?

I have a friend who graduated HS, joined the military for 4 years and gained a skill, went into telecommunications and retired with a six figure salary as a multi millionaire. His 4 year military experience was training in his chosen field so in fact he was paid to be educated in that field. Unlike today’s kids who come out of college with a $100,000 debt with a liberal arts degree and little prospect of finding a job making $40,000 or more to start.

Honestly I just want a normal boring desk job that pays a living wage and allows me to live a comfortable life. I don't need a glamorous life, I just want a home, a bed, a desk, and to not be struggling and depressed all the time. I just don't know what to look for that offers that.

CNAs make great money. They do the dirty work of RNs, and make fairly good money doing it. I've met lots of people who got their certification just to have a backup career, or a better job than say, a fast food or retail job. It usually only takes a six week course to be certified, and there is most likely a community college in your area where you can take the course, and be certified for extremely cheap prices, compared to other colleges. It's honest work for honest pay. Also, If registered nursing is something you want to do, experience as a CNA looks really good on your resume.
murphyc (9 days ago)
Haymitch: In truth, every nurse should have to work as a CNA or STNA before going into nursing. Nursing degrees are expensive and many nurses are real unhappy campers; they can make great money but the job can carry terrible responsibility and usually 12-hour shifts, depending on where you do the nursing. The STNA certificate I got in a career center in Ohio required only a 70-hour course (now 75 hours)that I did on Saturdays for 10 weeks; you can opt to do in 2 weeks during the day or 3 weeks going nights, and you do a 2-day stint at a local hospital or nursing home for the clinical. Cost for me a few years ago was $500. If you qualify, you can get it nearly free. I'd been let go from my medical transcription job at age 60 and was caring for my mom in my home at the time. Turned out I didn't need the STNA and ended up doing a caregiver contract through mom's lawyer to care for her in my home to get paid; mom could well afford i. It worked out fine until I could retire. I don't think STNA's make a fortune here in Ohio. They truly are underpaid for what they're expected to do, and most complain on the STNA forums. They are seriously overworked and look exhausted. But conceivably, you can walk into a nursing home in many places in the U.S. , and they'd hire you on with the stipulation that you get the certificate, and they might even pay for it. The nursing homes in my area keep their signs for STNA out all year.

To be an rn it's a 4 year dergee called a bsn to be an lpn/cna it's a 2 year dergee. These are the degrees to become a nurse. I'm currently in nursing school doing my bsn and let be the one to tell you the work you have to do to get a degree in nursing is one of the hardest thing a person will experience in life. It's also one of the hardest graduate degree to get it and takes a toll on your health. On top of that it's one of the hardest program to get accepted into for undergrad as well. Really not very motivated finish college rn which is why I'm here lol. Doing the schooling is worth it in the end but for those thinking of taking this path in life just know it's a hard job also. The truth of the job is doctors treat the patient and the nurses are the ones doing the maintenance to keep the person alive. It's the nurses who takes care of the patient and are the first ones to respond when a patient is dying. It's a lot of education can you have to be good at critical thinking. There's absolutely no way in hell this career should be this list. 😂

Becoming an actor/actress is the most glaring omission here because it makes the most money, and you don't even need a high school education! Not everybody is cut out for it though.

+GianPaolo DiCocco You sound like you know what you're doing. Best of luck to you!
GianPaolo DiCocco (6 days ago)
+murphyc I'm going into acting actually myself. I'm not in it for the money...just because I like doing it and the fame matters more to me than money, so the money should just flow from that. As long as I put in kick-ass performances while being obliging and kissing ass, I should be fine. First I kick ass, then I can kiss ass.
murphyc (9 days ago)
And God knows, not many make that big money, it all looks like pure luck to me and not even true talent in some cases. Probably need at least a super expensive agent. Imagine all the ass they have to kiss their whole career to get the next gig.

A university education is far more than preparing you for a job. It is about teaching you to access your critical thinking, and helping you to understand how the world works, and who you are or wish to o become in your world.

+murphyc since you asked, obviously my undergrad, and 2 post grad degrees...one in Education. The POINT is, however, that I don't have a HS diploma, and got all my degrees between ages 44 and 54. I am now 71.

+murphyc ...and my name is Elizabeth, not Liz, again something you'd know if you were well educated. You were likely one who just 'sat' in the classroom instead of opening your mind to what they were trying to pound into your brain.
Elizabeth K (8 days ago)
+murphyc again you need to go back to school and learn to comprehend (not just mouth the words). That is NOT what I said!
murphyc (9 days ago)
+Elizabeth K Liz, I've had 3 years of college. You make far too big a deal of what actually goes on in college day to day. You truly cannot do all you describe while sitting on your butt for 4 years in a classroom. I'm 64 and certainly did hone my skills, worked hard out in the real world and retired early. I actually paid for a trip to Europe back when I was 17 with a group of friends from high school from money I'd earned working part time. I bought my first home when I was 23. ANYONE can sit and read and study without being in a college classroom, and I did that also.

One big one you missed. Auto Mechanic. It is a build as you learn career. Start out in high school auto shop. Get a job at a quick lube place as you go to a trade school like UTI or Lincoln Tech. Starting out base for a C Tech (oil, tires, and minor services) start out at about $13.00 an hour. Training is on going, and if you are working for a dealership or a good garage. They will pay for your training and certification updates. I have been in the field for 31 years. I have made up to 100K in one year. It all depends on you , and the shop you work for. A high school diploma or a GED, and a bit of passion for cars, and you can go far.
