A Response to CNBC’s List of Highest Paying Jobs Without a College Degree

By Service Excellence Training A Response to CNBC’s List of Highest Paying Jobs Without a College Degree

This month, CNBC released its annual list of the top 10 highest paying jobs you can get without a college degree. The number one spot went to patrol officers with a median annual salary of $61,380 per year. The only trades jobs we focus on here at Service Excellence Training to make the list were:

  • Plumber at number 7 with a median annual salary of $53,910 per year.
  • Electrician at number 4 with a median annual salary of $55,190 per year.
  • Sales representative at number 3 with a median annual salary of $58,510 per year.

While these incomes are not bad, we know they can be a lot higher.  Not to mention, we know HVAC, roofing and other home service employees are also making salaries that are very competitive to the ones on the list.

We know we’re not the only ones who think this way. Here’s what one of you had to say on our Facebook:

“So low… I think I was earning about 55k my first year in the industry with very little experience just starting out.” 

So what do you think? Are you making around what CNBC says your making? Are you making less? If so, we can fix that for you when you attend one of our PRESS PLAY classes or join one of our monthly memberships.
