THE 5 HIGHEST PAYING JOBS YOU CAN GET RIGHT OUT OF HIGH SCHOOL


Let’s face it, not everyone wants to go to college and not many can afford it right out of high school.

If you have decided college isn’t for you, or you want to work for a few years to save the money to go instead of drowning in college debt, you will still need a job that pays you enough to live and to save.

Here are the top five highest-paying jobs you can land with a high school education:

PHLEBOTOMIST

Those people who prick you and take your blood at the hospital or doctor’s office don’t often hold extensive degrees. Many phlebotomists have only a high school degree, but they do go and get a certification. Pay is, at an average $16 an hour, but that can increase with experience and further education.

This is a great job to take if you are looking to expand into the medical field later. It will give you experience in a hospital or doctor’s office setting, which will be perfect for your future career.
