If a degree isn’t in the cards for you, that doesn’t mean you cant make a good living. In fact a number of career paths are available to people who prefer not to study at university particularly in the trade fields.
More and more industries are focusing on experience rather than education and a recent post by global jobs site Indeed highlighted the highest paying jobs in Australia that don’t require a degree.
Interestingly construction managers are at the very top of the list, earning on average $155,463 – a staggering 90% higher than the national average.
Other high paying non-degree jobs include fitness manager, sales manager, environmental health and safety officer, maintenance manager, HR managers, software engineers, real estate agents, pilots, an ethical hacker and construction manager.
Construction managers plan and direct building projects, managing staff and specialised contractors. This career can be reached with experience and a completed Certificate and Diploma in Building and Construction.
