Jobs with No Degree – Avoid Student Debt

no degree - avoid student debt


College costs in the US have been absolutely skyrocketing and most of us know that they continue to outpace inflation, just rising every year. The average student is going to come out with a debt of $30,000 to $60,000– or even higher– of student loan debt.

A lot of people course are asking if it is going to be the most effective way to spend another 3 to 5 years of their life and is it the best place to spend another $50,000 to $100,000??   The truth is, you don’t have to have a bachelors degree to achieve a well paying job that also  has the potential for upward movement and earnings increases.

You’ll often see ‘top ten lists’ of the best job ideas without a degree. Many of these lists focus on careers in the healthcare field such as nursing, dental hygienists, radiology technicians and diagnostic technicians.

But if you are not interested in healthcare, there is a great alternative – becoming an insurance adjuster! This is a job track that does not require a degree, just a certification.
