You don’t always need a college degree to get a high-paying job in a growing field.
The Bureau of Labor Statistics recently published projections for how the labor market is likely to change over the next decade. The release includes estimates for how much hundreds of jobs could grow or shrink between 2018 and 2028.
The recent data release also includes the typical educational requirement needed to work in each of those occupations. We found the 20 high-paying jobs that either require only a high school diploma or have no particular educational requirement that are projected to have the most new positions over the next decade.
Since we are focused on high-paying jobs, we restricted our list to occupations with a 2018 median annual wage above the overall national median of $38,640, according to the BLS’ Occupational Employment Statistics database.
