Our list covers currently available jobs that offer high earning potential to people without a technical or scientific degree. Some jobs require licenses or a little additional education, but most can be accomplished with a "worthless" liberal arts education (even one of those "lowly" online degrees).
Note: These are job categories as defined by the government in 2008. Therefore, some newer jobs or job categories aren’t included here. Entrepreneurship/owning your own business is also excluded.
