No college education doesn’t have to mean boring, repetitive work in an uninteresting job. We explore three interesting, entertaining jobs that don’t require a college education and can provide a healthy boost of income for you and your family.
For being a bartender, no formal education is required. Bartending School gives potential bar workers all the necessary information and skills to know when working behind a bar, from mixing drinks to dealing with customers. You will be dealing with intoxicated people (and relating to them is an art!) and you will also need to know the laws in place for when a patron has had too much. Look up the ABC Bartending School or similar for training locations near you.
With the added bonus of allowing you to work in the evening, when your kids are asleep, you could earn from $13,000 when you’re just starting out to $50,000 if you become a specialist cocktail maker in a really high class place.
Table Games Dealer
If you live in Las Vegas or any place where gaming is legal, being a table games dealer is an option. Most casinos require some form of past experience, yet others can train you on the job. There is also the option of casino dealing schools. A high school diploma is necessary along with customer service skills, mathematic skills and a keen attention to detail.
You could earn from $15,000 per year right up to $40,000+ if you become highly skilled and work for one of the bigger casinos.
Cable TV Installer
If you love watching TV, maybe a job as a Cable Installer is the one for you? No college education or previous experience required as on-the-job training provided by most companies. You will need good people skills as you’ll be dealing with the public and working for people inside their homes. Trustworthiness and professionalism are also a must.
A Cable TV installer can make anywhere from $21,500 to over $50,000 per year depending on experience and location.
College education is great for some, but if you don’t have one, don’t despair. There are a number of interesting well-paid jobs out there for people willing to try something different.
