Don’t let your nonexistent college degree or lack of experience deter you from applying for jobs.
There are plenty of awesome jobs out there that don’t require experience. Notice I said awesome jobs, not terrible jobs that nobody wants.
Think I’m bluffing? You’re in for a pleasant surprise.
Here are the top ten no experience jobs:
10. Promotional model
Not tall or thin enough to be a runway model? That’s okay. Most of us aren’t. You can still become a promotional model, also known as a brand ambassador. The average promotional model makes $25 an hour just to hand out free product samples and flash their sparkling white smile at customers.
If you can spell correctly (or know how to use the spell checker on your computer) and say interesting things, you can blog for a living. Companies and websites hire bloggers with no experience every single day. That’s right, people want to pay you just to share your opinions about different topics.
copyBeing a mom or dad is demanding, but there’s no experience necessary for this full-time gig. You’ll get free on-the-job training every day and receive payments in the form of kisses and hugs. If you ruin your first child’s life, just have a few more. You’ll get the hang of it eventually. If you have enough kids, maybe you can even get your own TV show. That’s really the only way to earn money from parenting.
Not ready for children of your own just yet? Become a nanny. You’ll get to play with adorable kids all day (and maybe a few bratty ones) and get paid to do it. If the family travels frequently, you might even get to accompany them on their vacations.
6. Actor or actress
Do your friends keep saying they’re sick of your drama? Don’t let your mood swings go to waste. You could star in a sitcom, soap opera, or movie. If you don’t mind having your privacy invaded 24/7, you can star in your own reality series.
5. Chiropractic assistant
Not a fan of blood or other bodily fluids? Chiropractic Assistants get to skip the messy tasks of the health care world. You’ll perform physical therapy, organize files, and verify health insurance benefits. No education is required for this job, as many doctors prefer to train their own staff.
4. Toy store clerk
What’s better than playing with toys all day? Getting paid to do it. You might even get an employee discount.
Love talking on the phone? Gab your heart out as a receptionist. When the phone calls stop, you’ll usually have walk-in visitors to assist. Working as a receptionist is also a great way to get your foot in the door at your dream job.
2. Recess monitor
Stop bullies in their tracks as a recess monitor. You also might finally get the chance to beat somebody at four square or kickball. Nobody has to know that you were a terrible athlete growing up.
1. Funeral director
Not the social type? As a funeral director, you don’t have to be. Some folks even make as much as $80,000 per year. Not too shabby for a job that doesn’t require a degree or experience. If working with dead bodies all day doesn’t creep you out, that is.
