 In the market for a job where you can make a good living, but don’t need a college diploma to qualify for it? CareerBuilder published a new hot list of ten jobs that:

  • pay ~$20 or more per hour
  • have grown over the last five years
  • are projected to grow over the next five years
  • don’t require a college degree
  • “The path to success is different for everyone,” said Matt Ferguson, CEO of CareerBuilder and co-author of The Talent Equation. “You can build a lucrative career through apprenticeships, post-secondary certificates or on-the-job training. There is significant demand for workers in everything from skilled trades to technology and health-related fields, and you can get your foot in the door without a formal degree.”

    The following includes historical and projected growth rates and average hourly earnings for in-demand occupations. It also provides the typical entry-level education requirement, though this may vary depending on the employer.
