Let's face it. Most people go to work because they need money, not because they love going to work. And for many of these people, they don't even care what they are doing just so that they make the most money possible. For those of you who fall into this category, what follows is a list of some of the more higher paying jobs for college and non college folks. Hopefully, you'll find something that pays you what you're looking for.
For those of you who don't have a college degree, don't fret, There are actually some pretty high paying jobs out there that don't require you to have a formal education.If you're interested in cars and know your way around the insides of one, you may want to consider becoming an auto mechanic. This job pays an average of about $14.71 per hour depending on where you live of course. That's well over $550 for a 40 hour work week.
Just plan on going home good and dirty each night.If you're not good with fixing cars but are great at driving them, you might want to consider becoming a truck driver. You average truck driver makes about $15.97 per hour. One good thing about the job is that you're pretty much on your own for the day and don't have to worry about your boss being all over you from 9 to 5.
Believe it or not, one of the higher paying jobs that don't require a college degree is that of a police officer. The average cop makes about $22.00 per hour. Sure, you have to contend with bullets flying all over the place but after a while even that gets to be pretty mundane. Okay, being a cop is dangerous. But it does pay well.
If you like to live dangerously, this may be just the thing for you.Of course, if you have a college degree, you're going to get the higher paying jobs.One of the most common jobs today, especially with the advances in technology, is the job of computer programmer. The average computer programmer makes about $23.
19 per hour and this is actually one of the lower paid college required jobs. That's probably because of the glut of programmers on the market.Of course if you really want to get technical and make even more money, you can become an engineer, of which there are many kinds such as electrical engineers, mechanical engineers, chemical engineers, civil engineers and on and on. The average engineer makes $33.50 per hour.
That's well over $1300 a week or over $65,000 a year. Not too shabby.But if you're really looking for big bucks and have 20-20 vision, then maybe you'd like to become an airline pilot. Don't laugh. Airline pilots make an average of $95.80 per hour.
Sure, there's always the dangers involved, which we won't even get into here, but that is one great hourly rate for taking people from one place to another.There are many good high paying jobs in the world. You just have to be qualified to do them. That is the hard part.
