Of course, college is not for everyone and there is nothing wrong with that!

Maybe you don't want student loans. Maybe you are just ready to do something besides hit the books.

Truth is, there are some top paying jobs out there that do not require a college degree.

These are $30,000 to $60,000 paying jobs. The more common ones are trade jobs, such as welders and machinists. Those pay on average about $40,000 within the first year on the job.

If you take on a job as a computer technician or a software engineer, you could be looking at a $50,000 to $60,000 paycheck.

Another high demand job that doesn't require a college degree is sales. A sales job pay varies, since many in sales are on commission.
