Did you gain some useful skills in the military, such as welding, mechanical or business-related qualifications through administrative tasks? Perhaps you have strong computer skills and would be a great fit for an information technology (IT) program? In fact, the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) reports that computer support specialists can work in their roles without needing a traditional degree. According to 2016 data, their average median annual salary was $52,160. Not only that, but job growth for these careers is expected to be 12 percent from 2014-24. That’s faster than the national average, which is currently 7 percent.
