The 13 best jobs in 2016 for people who don’t have a college degree

If “get a new job” is on your to-do list for 2016, look no further.

CareerBuilder and Economic Modeling Specialists Intl. (EMSI) have compiled a list of the most in-demand jobs for 2016 for people without a college degree.

They used EMSI’s extensive labor market database, which pulls from over 90 national and state employment resources, to look at supply and demand (the number of job ads companies post each month outpace the number of people they actually hire), growth, and salary data for every profession in the database.

They then sorted the results by the required level of education.

Here are the occupations with the largest gap between job openings and hires that don’t typically require a college degree. (Some occupations may require additional training after high school.)
