What are some jobs that require little education and have a pretty good salary?
So I'm only a junior in high school right now but lately the thought of what I am going to do with my life has not escaped my mind. I've been doing some research lately but still very confused and frustrated. I live in Tennessee but an willing to move. I have a 3.85GPA and rank 15 out of 201. I know I can get scholarships but college is just SOO expensive! I did want to be a nurse practitioner but I don't want to be in my 30's when my life is finally good and I have a good job. I want to have kids and spend time with them. I'm just open to any ideas or jobs that don't require much schooling and are well payed. Thank you:D

Seriously - Railroad crew. Look on the career section of a railroad web site. They train you too. The pay is good and the pension plan is very good. However, for the first 10 years you work a lot of weird shifts.
