Earlier this year, we had a profile of 10 Flexible Jobs which did not require a degree. And we were happy to see recent articles from LearnVest about this topic – “A new study of Georgetown University Center on Education and Workforce found that 29 million jobs are middle-class wages ($ 35,000- $ 72,000) Pay, but university degree is not required, about 40% of them pay $ 50,000 or more. ”

This is really great news.

What do job seekers need to know if they want to find a job without a college degree?

Here are some details of the study learning analysis:

  • One third of them are blue collar jobs
  • Half-white-collar office jobs
  • There are about 15% of jobs in health care
  • Many of these jobs are in the STEM field: Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics

What kind of education is required for these jobs?

According to the study, it is still difficult to get a job with a high school diploma. Instead, LearnVest says, “Try to get some form of secondary training, two years degree or certificate.” In particular, Georgetown University, who studied, recommends these educational paths that you can qualify for these types of jobs:

  • Employer-based training
  • Industry-based certificate

  • postsecondary certificate
  • Associate Degree
