Guest Post: 13 of The Best Paid (Realistic) Careers That Don't Require A Degree

I want to live on earth as in heaven. I know you want to live on earth as in heaven too. Together we want to live on earth as in heaven.

If all human beings want to live on earth as in heaven, then evil will wane quickly. And that's when peace comes down to earth.

Matthew {6:10} Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as [it is] in heaven.

I am happy. You are happy. All humans will be happy. :)

13 of The Best Paid (Realistic) Careers That Don't Require A Degree

By Joe Thomas

Even today, many people still consider university the best or only way to attain a well-paying job. Whilst this assumption still holds value, there are now a plethora of professions around that do not require a degree to get into, and which allow you to achieve an above average to highly lucrative salary.

What we are providing in the list below, is 15 completely different and varied professions in which you do not formally need a degree to get into. Of course, having a degree will help, however, these careers look at more than just the ability to study and do well in exams.

For those perhaps with a less than perfect background – criminal records, health and educational issues, for example, we have also included a couple of professions where you can still earn above average salaries with a bit of hard work.

The 10 Most Dangerous Jobs In The World

Truck Driver

Whilst hardly a glamorous job, becoming a Truck Driver means you get to travel all over the country, listen to your own music on the stereo and eat whenever you like. All you need for this is a full driving license and to pass an LGV and/or an HGV test and you could be earning a salary of up to £35,000. Much higher than the UK average of £26,500. Truck drivers are currently in short supply in the UK, so salaries could rise further, making this an ideal job for someone who may be struggling to reach the UK average otherwise.

Recruitment Consultant

The recruitment sector is a highly lucrative market, worth over £30 billion in the UK. You will need strong sales abilities, a good customer service attitude, and sharp problem-solving skills to flourish in this business. Intricate knowledge of a particular career sector is a bonus for top quality recruitment, with top earners taking in excess of £38,000 before (a hefty) commission.

A career as a journalist can be as varied as any two people, it really depends on what you’re interested in. You could work in sports, politics, art, lifestyle or travel to name just a few. The main things you need to get started are good writing skills under deadline pressure, strong self-confidence and lots of enthusiasm. A journalist at the top of their field can expect to earn a minimum salary of £35,000, depending on what kind of publication you’re going for. You can do degrees in journalism, as with almost every industry nowadays, but it is far from a necessity.

Stone Masonry is one the oldest crafts in the world, used to create iconic buildings such as the Egyptian Pyramids, Stonehenge, the Temples of Angkor and our beloved Houses of Parliament. No formal education is required, simply find a local college that is offering courses in Stone Masonry or Construction to learn the basics. Once you’ve worked your way up you could be on £40,000 a year.

Working as a security officer is another job that requires nothing more than a good character and a relatively fit physique. You will need to be patient, polite, sensible, and be able to work well under stress. Small jobs aren’t particularly lucrative in terms of salary, but higher security jobs can earn you £40,000+.

Digital Marketing

SEO and PPC combine to make up what most people perceive to be digital marketing, with roles such as email and affiliate marketing also coming under the same banner. Each niche is different, with SEO’s aim being to help a website rank organically on a search engine results page, and PPC’s to give websites visibility online at a specific time and place (and cost). Whilst degrees in related fields – business and marketing, for example – can help, they are not always required as much can be learned on the job. Salaries start at junior levels, however, you can quickly rise to the mid-thirty thousand within a few years, depending on location and how hard you work.

Police Constable

As a Police Officer, you will learn more about people’s behavior and what it is to be part of a community than you possibly could in any other job. You will need a clear head, a friendly attitude, good leadership skills, amongst many other attributes, but with those, you could be earning upwards of £41,000 a year.

Fire Fighter

Fire Fighters do everything from saving lives to educating and supporting local communities; the job is continually evolving and you will never be left uninspired. Good character and physical build are the most important attributes, for you’ll find these the most valuable tools for dealing with the situations that arise. A fully trained Fire Fighter can earn a minimum of £28,700, with that rising to £55,000 for Area Managers. The dangers of the job are self-explanatory.

For Senior Management roles, you could earn over £50,000 a year.

Fashion Designer

Whilst the competition in the fashion world is fierce, experience and talent are more important than qualifications. Alexander McQueen, for instance, left formal education at the age of 16 with one O-level. Build up a good portfolio, market yourself well and plague fashion houses and companies with your enthusiasm, and, the world really could be your oyster.
