Many of the fastest growing careers in the US do not require 4-year degree. In fact, they just require a certificate program, proper training and experience. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, nine of the top-twenty fastest growing careers from 2012 to 2022 will not need a traditional 4-year degree.
The increase in demand for these skilled labor positions could be due to several reasons, including the over-saturation of 4-year degrees and a large number of unemployed college graduates. Additionally, the currently fast-growing city infrastructure will require maintenance and repairs for years to come.
Many skilled trades are expected to show job growth of over 20% over the next ten years. The growth in these skilled labor sectors is well over twice that of the national average. Some of these skilled trade jobs include:
- Electronics Technicians
- Major Appliance Technicians
- HVAC Installers and Technicians
