US News & World Report had this to say in a recent article about best careers for a changing job landscape: "Meanwhile, society has been telling high school students that college is the way, so there's an accelerating shortage of skilled people in jobs that don't require college.

"The four non-college careers we added would be rewarding even to many college graduates, especially because college grads are likely to stand out against the competition.
