On Google, searches for “jobs without a degree” reached an all-time high in the US this year, according to Google Trends data, writes CNBC, quoted by
Nearly 75 percent of U.S. jobs that pay more than $35,000 a year require a college degree, but only 38 percent of Americans have a bachelor’s degree, says Lisa Gevelber, Google’s director of marketing for the Americas.
This difference in income is a “big problem” for understaffed companies and for employees who feel the effects of inflation.
Google research shows that people are most excited about jobs that offer ample travel opportunities, flexible work schedules and a clear path to becoming your own boss.
Top 3 most searched jobs on Google in 2023:
1. Real estate agent
3. Travel agent
Google established this ranking based on the top searches phrased in the form of “how to become…” by people in the US.
While all three of these roles require — or recommend — at least a high school diploma or GED, there are no formal educational requirements beyond that.
Instead, to work as a notary public or real estate agent, you will need to obtain an official certification or license with the state in which you work. Depending on where you live, this process could take anywhere from 1 to 9 months, according to the National Notary Association and Indeed.
Most travel agents require at least a high school diploma and on-the-job training. Agents can also choose to acquire certifications with various transit associations, such as the Cruise Lines International Association or the International Air Transport Association, which allows them to book travel for customers on airlines and cruise lines.
Compensation is an important consideration for those looking for jobs without a degree. In Google searches for jobs without a degree, “high paying jobs without a degree” was a top search in 2023.
Average salaries for these roles vary: According to ZipRecruiter, the average salary for travel agents in the US is $39,955, while real estate agents earn an average of $86,356 per year and notaries earn $129,717.
However, the top 10% of real estate agents and notaries earn well over $100,000 and $200,000, respectively.
