PART I: The Best Jobs Lists: Jobs That Don’t Require a Four-Year Degree

ePub

This part contains a lot of interesting lists, and it’s a good place for you to start using the book. Here are some suggestions for using the lists to explore career options:

The Table of Contents at the beginning of this book presents a complete listing of the list titles in this section. You can browse the lists or use the table of contents to find those that interest you most.

We gave the lists clear titles, so most require little explanation. We provide comments for each group of lists.

As you review the lists of jobs, one or more of the jobs may appeal to you enough that you want to seek additional information. As this happens, mark that job (or, if someone else will be using this book, write it on a separate sheet of paper) so that you can look up the description of the job in Part II.

Keep in mind that all jobs in these lists meet our basic criteria for being included in this book, as explained in the Introduction. All lists, therefore, contain jobs that require less than a four-year degree and that have high pay, high growth, or large numbers of openings. The economic measures are easily quantified and are often presented in lists of best jobs in the newspapers and other media. Although required education or training, earnings, growth, and openings are important, you also should consider other factors in your career planning, such as location, liking the people you work with, and having opportunities to be creative. Many other factors that may help define the ideal job for you are difficult or impossible to quantify and thus aren’t used in this book, so you will need to weigh the importance of these issues yourself. Consider using some of the career exploration resources listed in the last part of the Introduction.

 

PART II: The Job Descriptions

ePub

This part of the book provides descriptions for all the jobs included in one or more of the lists in Part I. The Introduction gives more details on how to use and interpret the job descriptions, but here is some additional information:

Job descriptions are arranged in alphabetical order by job title. This approach allows you to quickly find a description if you know its correct title from one of the lists in Part I.

If you are using this section to browse for interesting options, we suggest you begin with the Table of Contents. Part I features many interesting lists that will help you identify job titles to explore in more detail. If you have not browsed the lists in Part I, consider spending some time there. The lists are interesting and will help you identify job titles you can find described in the material that follows. The job titles in Part II are also listed in the Table of Contents.

Education/Training Required: Moderate-term on-the-job training

Annual Earnings: $42,820

Beginning Wage: $22,390
