The Best-Paid U.S. Jobs Requiring No Bachelor's Degree

If you're looking for a well-paid job but you don't have the money, time and sheer patience required to complete a four-year bachelor degree, do not fear!

You will find more statistics at Statista

As Statista's Nial McCarthy points out, according to Bureau of Labor Statistics data, plenty of U.S. jobs require an associate degree (usually taking two years), a postsecondary nondegree certificate or a high-school diploma.

Air-traffic controller offers the highest wages without a bachelor degree with the median annual salary coming to $122,410. Prospective applicants should keep in mind that the job still requires an associate degree.

Even though nuclear-power reactor operator sounds like a job requiring extensive university qualifications, it actually only requires a high-school diploma or equivalent. It has a very lucrative median salary of $91,170 a year.
