What are the highest paying jobs in owensboro without a degree? I'm halfway through an associates degree but I need a good job now. I'd be happy with sales, factory, factory work, or anything that pays well.

Are you male or female? I'm a hairdresser and my income is better than any factory job.

Female. True but I need a degree or certification or something for that. I need a job now like within a week or two. Thanks though. I have been wanting to do nails but that takes time too.

I don't know any hairdressers pulling 6 figures, but I could be wrong. I do know it's possible working a blue collar job like I do though.

I work in a power plant. Starting pay while training is around 50k, once trained around 85-90k base plus holidays, bonus and overtime = >100k. Suffice it to say I do NOT work for OMU.

On average I clear $1200-$1400, that's after paying my booth rent and supplies. This time of year is a little slow I may clear $700-$900, but at the the holidays it's not less than $1400 a week

I bet when you say "clear" you aren't talking about after taxes, health insurance and 401k contributions. There's no way you "clear" that as a hair dresser if you are paying booth rent, taxes, health insurance, 401k, Social Security etc etc. I would bet my paycheck on that.

That's really good!! Where do you work at? I'm going to apply. How long is training? That's a deal, they give you a 90% raise after training.

Yes that includes booth rent, and liability insurance. My husband pays our health insurance and 401K. I pay my taxes quarterly, that includes social security and save a percent every month for that. I work 4 days a week and on average do 4-6 chemicals a day (colors, highlights, perms) not including waxes and haircuts. In a 10-12 day I see around 6-10 clients. And those clients who get chemicals average ticket is $87-$100. So yes I do CLEAR that:)

I work at very established salon here in town. My training was 1 1/2 years bc I went during high school, but as an adult it takes 2 years. I never said anything about a 90% raise. I've worked my butt off for almost 17 to have to clientele I have.

I was talking to the guy that said he worked at a factory making 100k. I was joking, very few people make 100k at a factory. Maybe of he's an engineer. He said they start you out at 50k and then after training you make 90k. I think he's full of crap. If it was that good of a job, everybody would want to work there.

Let me offer you some wisdom here. Get a part time job in the field you want to work in. Then get a 4 year degree in that field. A two year degree sucks unless it's something health care related, working on cars, or beauty school. Do the best you can do in school. It does matter for future employment.

Don't waste your time with a degree that everybody else is getting. Teaching is a perfect example. How many teachers can there be in this town. If 4 people graduate a year with a teaching degree, that's 8-12 new teachers ahead of you.

It's better to be broke now vs broke later with student loan debt.
