Default Looking for a new job

What are some decent jobs in the 50-100k range that require no college degree. I've been with the same company for 7 years doing outside sales. Looking to get out of the wireless field.

No college and 50-100k? Good luck.

Start your own business. The number of educated and experienced unemployed people in this country is ******* insane right now.

I'm in a similar boat. I have a BS degree in government bullshit and I'm trying to get something in Houston in the $70k range. I'm probably only looking at account management and the private site of government bullshit. I suspect that at the least Jake and I will have to stay put until we get a Republican Whitehouse to sponsor some real economic growth rather than our current strategy of penalizing anyone turning a profit.

Eventually, when my GF has the PhD, I'll be a glorified house boy and can hopefully get a job at a racecar shop to cover a few track expenses and fund my habit.

Statement untrue. Most of my friends that are doing really well money wise have not gone to college. While everyone else is doing the daily grind for under 50K

My masters will only net me around 100 pretax on my paycheck. But them I work for the gov. as a teacher, Secretary, police officer, counsel, temporary mother~father, older brother, or what ever else they think they can pile on but lets not turn this in to a political discussion.

Yeah, and I have PhD Friends who are highly motivated and very intelligent making 30k a year. How many of your friends newly acquired these jobs?

The economist-GF claims the real unemployment rate is currently at 14% and predicts 18% by the end of the year...which is perfect to secure votes in the next election of course considering the people on sustenance will vote for sustenance peddling politicians.

Some recently, some not. You forget I'm in TX and rig and oil jobs can pay well.

I also have a lot of underemployed friends as well. Underemployment is the big thing right now. I think that's what Hustlers GF is alluding to in the real unemployment rate. My Fiance is underemployed right now but thankful to have a Job.

move to northern virginia. unemployment in arlington county is 3.9%.

also: what kind of range is 50-100k? Something tells me you need to figure that out first. Your real range is either 45-55k or 90-110k. pick one of thsoe and go find a job.

I believe her numbers are based upon more than the number of people recieving unemployment benefits.

Arlington, VA is an employment destination, the same as Houston and Seattle...some absurd percentage of the population is there for high-paying jobs. The rest of the nation doesn't have centralized technology, government, nor energy to attract workers.

Stay away from construction. Thats for sure.

Right now I'm currently between 3 jobs. My main gig is my eBay service, 2nd would be the concrete business and I work on painting the building when I have time between the other two. eBay is different every week. Sometimes I make just enough and other times I make enough to cover the entire month. Concrete work is up and down as well. Last week I squeezed in just over 30 hours and so far this week I havent worked an hour. Painting the building is just a little side jobber that I'm using to pay off my loan a few years early.

Work is ******* SCARCE right now man. I mean jesus **** I'd work 60 hours a week pouring concrete if I could, but there just isn't enough work out there. Most places are laying people off rather than hiring, and the ones hiring are the $10hr part time jobs. College education or not (which is overrated anyways).

If you've been at the same place for 7 years and make good money, I'd recommend staying. At least for the time being. You don't have to stay there forever, but NOW isn't exactly the best time to quit a job and look for a new one in the $50k-$100k range. IMHO that is.

Pushy - How long has it been since you quit smoking? I thought you were hardcore? You cant even make it a month before breaking down and whining like a bitch about it? lol
