When applying for a job, many assume that a college degree provides a distinct advantage. And while this may be the case for some positions, there are opportunities that don’t require a college degree at all. In fact, there are over 2,000 jobs on Idealist right now that don’t require anything beyond high-school education, and they’re located all across the country.

  • If you feel strongly about protecting our natural resources and heritage, join up as an Organizer with the Sierra Club’s Our Wild America campaign in Montana or Wyoming.
  • If you have event planning experience and consider yourself a people-person, head to New Orleans and apply for the job with the best title on the site: Community Hustler.

So don’t worry if you don’t have a college degree; there are plenty of jobs that prefer work experience and technical skills. Get out there and show them what you’ve got!
