It was simply impossible for a potential employee to get a good salary without having a degree. Things have changed since then with the ongoing change in the global labour market.

While graduates could still earn more than their peers in certain fields, more companies are now choosing competence, certain skill sets and level of experience over degrees. 

Here are five high-paying jobs you can get without a degree:

Graphic designer

Being a graphic designer is a job that requires a certain skill set that is not necessarily tied to a degree. Payscale estimates that a designer could earn up to N360,000 every month.

Web/software developer

In 2018, the World Economic Forum released a brief titled ‘The Future of Jobs Report 2018,’ showing that the evolution of the workforce will result in the redundancy of regular jobs.

Jobs like accountants, financial analysts, lawyers, cashiers and ticket clerks are expected to give way to jobs that do not necessarily a degree like being a web or software developer. Here, experience counts for more.

According to Payscale, the average web developer earns NGN 983,122 every year. Monthly salary ranges from NGN 204,257 - NGN 4,290,277.
