Six-Figure Jobs

Looking for a six-figure job without a four-year degree? These six lines of work boast potentially hefty paychecks without a traditional diploma. The data below is provided by PayScale.com and represents the benchmark cash earnings for high-earners (75th percentile), as well as the 90th percentile within the field for the year 2008.

1. Air Traffic Controller
75th percentile: $156,000
90th percentile: $186,000

Air traffic controllers monitor and direct air traffic to ensure the safety of all parties involved in private and commercial flights. Their direction keeps planes from colliding and can also lead to more efficient flights and fewer delays. In some countries, air traffic controllers are also used for defense purposes. The high salary of an air traffic controller comes with a huge amount of responsibility.

Prospective air traffic controllers must have four years of college or at least three years of full-time employment. Education and work experience can be combined to meet the requirement. Completion of the Federal Aviation Authority's Air Traffic-Collegiate Training Initiative (AT-CTI) program can also be used in place of college. AT-CTI schools offer two- or four-year programs.

2. Real Estate Broker
75th percentile: $151,000
90th percentile: $187,000

Real estate brokers bring together buyers and sellers in order to complete property transactions. They differ from real estate agents in that brokers are allowed to manage or own their own firms.

In order to become a broker, a college degree is not required. However, each state requires a specific number of hours of course work in order to obtain a real estate agent's license. Agents can typically obtain a brokerage license after three years of industry experience. (There's no guarantee that realtors will act in your best interest, but it may be worth hiring one anyway.)

3. Plumber or Pipefitter
75th percentile: $94,500
90th percentile: $130,000

Plumbers and pipefitters assemble, install, and make changes in pipe systems used to carry water, steam, air, and other liquids and gases. They may also install bathtubs, toilets, heating and refrigerating units.

Although these lines of work have many similarities and workers skilled in one area are often skilled in the other, the trades are often identified as separate. Either way, high earnings potential exists without a college degree. Even though a four-year degree is not required, an apprenticeship may take just as much time to complete. The typical apprenticeship lasts four to five years.
