These 5 Jobs Earn An Average of $68,000 After Five Years Of Work And You Don’t Need A College Degree

The AJC posted a story in April highlighting five jobs you can get in Georgia without a college degree.

There’s a catch on the salaries posted, however. The numbers in the post reference salaries earned after five years working in that field, but the salaries are solid nonetheless.

If you land some of these roles right out of high school you could be earning $65,000+ before you can rent a car at most places.

I’ll list the jobs below while you can click the hyperlink in the lede to read more about each position.

  • Farmers, ranchers, and other agricultural managers

          2016 median pay: $66,360

  • Transportation, storage and distribution managers

          2016 median pay: $89,190

  • Food service managers

          2016 median pay: $50,820

  • Postmasters and mail superintendents

          2016 median salary: $71,670

  • Claims adjusters, examiners and investigators

         2016 median pay: $63,680

The AJC added one more for fun, and I’ll let you click the link to the story see what it is.
