Twenty great jobs that don't require a college degree

CareerCast, an online job board, has put together a list of good jobs that don't require a college degree. Not that there's anything wrong with a college degree, but some young people might have concluded from all the ballyhoo about the need for a college degree to pursue a career path that they'll eventually regret. Or end up with crushing student loans.

Bet you can't guess what the number one, highest paid, in-demand job is. No peaking. (Like me, you probably will be surprised too, and pleased.)

So, go to the list here

  • Forgot a few of the higher paying gigs:

    1. Software company owner (think Microsoft).
    2. Personal Computer developer (think Apple).
    3. Singer/Performer/Actor
    4. Radio Talk Host
    5. Sports pro
    6. Journalist.

    Okay, journalist isn't so high paying, but at least there is a lot of free finger food.
