What are some career alternatives to traditional 4-year colllege that still pay decent?

Hey are there any jobs or career paths that you can recommend that offer you a great chance to "move up the ladder" after getting an entry level position? I've heard so many stories about people getting 4 year degrees and then they cant even find a job in their field, so I'm talking about an entry level job at a place where maybe once you've been there awhile maybe they would send somewhere to get trained for an even higher position within the company or something?
