There are some out-of-the-box jobs that just don’t need a degree but pay insanely well and are interesting to do as well. Here is a list of some for you to explore:

Costume attendant:

Selecting and fitting costumes for entertainers and making them ready for them to wear as soon as possible, this is a demanding but fun job. Quick thinking on your feet and a diploma is all you need to get going.

Soap Boiler:

Making soap is a colourful process but a cumbersome one too. With a high school diploma, you could become one and earn a lot too. Small- to medium-sized soap producers need soap boilers for a multistep process that turns fats into “neat soap” used for bars and powders.

Billboard Installer:

This one need no prior training but the desire to climb high and up and install them for others.

Braille proofreader:

This one is a rare one to take one but will pay extremely well, if you can master reading braille and can afford to get a bachelor’s degree in any discipline.

Great acoustics comes from great settings. If you are someone who understands sounds, precision and enjoys music, this one is a easy one and you made for it.

Seismograph Shooter:

They set off explosives that loosen the earth so that seismograph readings can be done, usually to reveal petroleum deposits. You need a high school diploma, up to five years of experience in the industry and long-term on-the-job training in order to blow things up like a pro.

Wastewater Treatment Plant Operator:

This one definitely doesn’t smell too good. But the pay is horrendously good. The median annual wage of a wastewater treatment plant operator is already $49,088 on average.
