image I was emailed a link to the following article today. The writer of the article is debating whether it is worth it or not to pay for college and get a four year degree. The top 25 jobs (without a degree) are listed below. Yes, funeral director is on the list. But should it be? No you don’t have to have a four year degree but you do have to attend and graduate from a Mort. Science program. And it can certainly take four years to get through school and a apprenticeship. Follow the link to view the list. Should a FD be on the list?

Can you get a good paying job without a degree?

After recently writing about the debate of whether a college degree was still worth it or not, I have been doing a little bit more research on the topic. I found out about the growing FauxPloma industry and I recently stumbled on an article that talks about the top paying 25 jobs that you can get without a degree.
