How To Get A $50,000 Job Without College

New Report Outlines Best High Pay Jobs - No College Degree Necessary
There are 29 million jobs that pay middle-class wages between $35,000 and $75,000 annually and don't require a college degree, says a new study from Georgetown University. 

Nearly 40% pay more than $50,000 a year, according to a study released jointly by the Georgetown University Center on Education and the Workforce and Civic Enterprises. 

Those jobs represent 21% of all jobs for workers without Bachelor’s degrees. For both men and women, the best jobs are in sub-baccalaureate STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) and healthcare, where over 80 percent of jobs pay middle-class wages.

The report details five major sub-baccalaureate, career and technical education (CTE) pathways: employer-based training, industry-based certifications, apprenticeships, postsecondary certificates, and associate's degrees. 

The study also found that one-third of CTE jobs are blue collar, half are white-collar office jobs, and another 15% are in healthcare.

    why aim so low?
    apparently if you want to be the county administrator all you need is basic secretary skills.
    Judy was just that for Lester Baird for years, and low an behold the Board Considers sitting near that job as training for that job. Why is it the BOCC is so shocked that the woman is not trained for this job? your commissioners hired her untrained no college education to speak of, no past work experience other than fetching coffee for Lester and we paid her $130,000.00 a year! 50k? peshaw aim high 130K no college required!
