Quit my flea bag retail job last week I worked their for 2 1/2 years I made $500-$600 a month they only offered me 20 hours a week would not offer me full time or allow me to improve. I have to kids enough is enough I stayed thinking that I would have a opportunity but I said fuck'em its time to move on. I am on a mission to find a job something different I want to step away from retail. I would like to work in a office I have a little bit of experience I did a internship working for State Farms Insurance when I was17 that was 10 years ago thought. The reality is I'm 27 and I have a high school diploma . My question is what is a great paying job for someone with a hs diploma????? is their any jobs you suggest??? are their any secret jobs out there that people are not aware of???? I would be happy even if I made 200-300 a week!!!!!!!

  • Everyone would like to know this. I have a bacholars degree, and an associates degree, I just accepted a part time per diem job 70 miles from my house because there isn't anything else.

    Try to get a certificate in something, because you might also get help with job placement. Also internships help increase expirence. Good luck.

  • I wouldn't quit one job until I had another when I had small children depending on me.
    You might try getting a certificate, like RyansMom001 suggested. Phlebotomy is a job with great job prospects and it doesn't take long to be trained. Good luck

  • Yikes, well... you have college graduates that are now wishing they had the job you had. In some areas, a job is a job. Truly, it's dog eat dog. If you have no college degree and someone comes along that does... they are going to take them. Too much money involved in both real estate and insurance businesses. Good luck to you.

  • Not a air head my husband just got promoted he told me if I wasn't happy this would be the opportunity for me to make a change I want to go to school Im not looking for a career job at the moment I understand I need training first . For instance their are jobs out their that pay great I was talking to a customer at my store she explained that some hospital jobs only require hs diploma she makes $ 14 an hour working as a Operator.

  • I know dozens of people with a high school diploma or less making 6 figures yearly. I also know dozens that have master's degrees earning the same, with the same type of company.

    Multi level marketing does work, if you work it! No degree's an even playing field with no predjudice

  • You will need to at some point explain quitting or the gap in the work history. Never a good idea to just jump, give notice .Good luck

  • I ran an ad for a resceptionist and got 100 resumes almost all were college graduates and 2 had master's degrees. Try getting some kind of training. Around here any medical training like EKG Technician, Xray technician, Medical Transcriptionist pay very well $15-$25 an hour. Good luck

  • How about waitressing? Not glamorous but if you have a good personality and land the right job you can make some really good money.
