Six Figure Jobs with No Degree Required

  • Published on : Sep 10 2010

With school starting up this month, I thought it would be a good idea to write about a few high paying jobs that don’t necessary require a college education. A new article was published at about a salary report compiled by, which ran all of the numbers and found six of the best jobs where top performers are making over $100,000 a year, without a bachelor’s degree. You can read the full article here, or just view my quick preview below.

Fire Chief: Top Pay $121,000 / Median Pay: $72,900

Air Traffic Controller: Top Pay $159,000 / Median Pay: $83,700

Nuclear Power Reactor Manager: Top Pay $128,000 / Median Pay: $86,200

Director of Security: Top Pay $123,000 / Median Pay: $68,700

Elevator Mechanic: Top Pay $109,000 / Median Pay: $72,900

Court Reporter: Top Pay $105,000 / Median Pay: $57,200

It’s actually quite amazing how much some of these jobs are paying. I never would have even thought about how much an “elevator mechanic” makes, but it really is a six figure job!

I don’t know about you, but right when I saw this article, the first thing I thought of was internet and affiliate marketers. A great deal of huge startups were a result of people dropping out of college, or even starting their own businesses in high school or during college. I personally started making money online while I was a Sophomore in high school… and now we are seeing kids make money online in their lower teens. It’s quite amazing and there has never been an opportunity like it before!

Affiliate Marketer: Top Pay $NO LIMIT / Median Pay: $VARIES

The learning curve for affiliate marketing is what you put into it. Whether you have a doctorate, master’s degree, high school diploma, a drop out or even just graduated from elementary school… you can still make money online.

How old were you when you made your first dollar online?
