It’s part of the highs and lows of looking at job ads: “Wow, look at that pay range—that’d be great! Oh, but they require a bachelor’s degree. Next.”

Look, college isn’t for everyone. The good news is that employers know this, and there are in-demand industries and jobs—especially in the red-hot tech sector—where the right combination of experience, aptitude and willingness to learn on the job can make that degree requirement fade away.

1. Graphic Designer

Some graphic designers still do their artwork by hand, but the field is increasingly computer-driven. In a corporate setting, this role can involve design and production of advertisements, corporate reports, brochures and magazines. Employers often seek candidates with a degree, but experience and a creative portfolio can win you the right audience.

2. Digital Marketer

Use the power of the internet to promote products and services in a way that makes the best use of everyone’s time and effort, including yours. Digital marketing emphasizes soft skills and communication in dealing with clients but also hard skills like gathering and sorting through online analytics data. Much like traditional marketing positions, a college degree is a benefit, but not a pure necessity.
