Six Figure Jobs That Don’t Require an Advanced Degree

Are you in the market for a new job? You may think that a six-figure job is out of your reach, but according to a Western Michigan news station, there are a growing number of jobs that pay top salaries.

There are even plenty of six-figure jobs, the report says, that don’t require an advanced degree — or even any degree for that matter.

Making the list were plumbers and pipe fitters, police detectives, ultrasound technicians and court reporters. Also on the list was the job of air traffic controller — which also makes our list for high-paying position.

Now, I had no idea that ultrasound techs and court reporters were pulling in six-figure paychecks, but according to, a good number are.  If you want to learn more about what it is like to be an air traffic controller or what police detective jobs entail, you can check out our JobMonkey job profiles.
