Considering the recent focus on two-year schools and vocational education, I found pretty interesting this piece on jobs that pay a median salary of $45,000 a year and require just a two-year degree — at least for entry:
- Registered Nurse
- Dental Hygienist
- Respiratory Therapist
- Telecom Installer
- Industrial Engineering Technician
- Police Officer (Federal)
- HVAC Mechanic
How accurate do you think this list is?
