University isn’t for everyone, and there are plenty of well-paying jobs out there for those who don’t see themselves taking on a few more years of school after Grade 12.
According to a list compiled by job site Indeed.com, half of the top 10 jobs for people without a degree have an average salary above $75,000, and a couple crack six figures.
Even though a recent study shows university graduates make more money regardless of the subject, it’s not the path everyone chooses to take after high school.
Many of the top-paying roles that don’t need a degree still require some kind of specialized training. But it’s still a far cry from spending four or more years at a university.
The list showed the average salary posted for each of the top ten jobs, and the number of positions posted per 1 million job postings in Canada from May to July of this year.
1. Web developer, $61,822 – 1253
2. Electrician, $62,339 – 1290
3. Sales executive, $63,017 – 623
4. Construction inspector, $64,675 – 100
5. App developer, $66,058 – 1,117
