Did you know that the cost of college is now more than $17,000 a year? But there are careers that don't require a degree.
For example, transportation, storage and distribution managers are responsible for the infrastructure that business relies on to ship goods. Median salary, over $83,000 a year... nearly $40 an hour.
Installers and repairmen, especially those who work on escalators, elevators, and moving walkways can make upwards of $78,000. That industry expected to grow more than 24% over the next decade.
Detectives and criminal investigators, those who help crack federal and state cases, can make around $76,000 a year.
Commercial pilots for nonscheduled flights likes charter helicopters, air ambulance, air tours can make around $75,000. Some training is needed, but not a four-year degree. Larger commercial airlines usually require a bachelor's.
Transportation inspectors who mainly monitor cargo transport including rail shipping, can make about $65,000 a year.
