Careers Without College: Automotive Repair
With the escalating costs of college, many students graduate from a 4-year program with an average debt that can range from nearly $30,000 to more than $70,000. This is only one of a number of reasons many individuals leaving high school choose not to seek additional formal education. Increasingly, there are many opportunities that provide well-paying and secure careers without a college degree. One such market segment, the automotive maintenance and repair industry, employs more than 500,000 mechanics, and continues to grow at more than 3 percent per year.
