A well-paying, rewarding career doesn't have to mean a four-year slog through college. There are plenty of jobs that pay nicely with less education, ranging from certificate courses just a few months long to two-year community college programs.

In these times of riseing and falling unemployment numbers, here is a great article listing 10 jobs that pay pretty good and the best part? They require little to no training or college education for those who either need work now, or just don't have the time or money to attend school full time.

Of course these are not the only jobs that fit into this category but it's a great start I hope some of the jobless and strugling members may find this of use, and for the more fortunate.... maybe keep some of this in mind because you never know.

Yes in todays economic atmosphere of no loyalty to employees or employers one needs to be flexible.

I bet two of the largest growing industries is the black market and the illegal drug industry.

I would like to add two other trades.

Auto and heavy equipment mechanic.
Solar electrician/installer

There trades will continue to be good paying and they can not ship the jobs to china or India.

The trick will be keeping up on training as the jobs change with new technology. like electric cars and the new printed thin film solar and the new batteries systems for both.
