Remember how excited you were when you graduated from high school? The world was at your feet, and you were ready to conquer it. Off you went to college where you…never figured out what you really wanted to do? Or you got a degree in a subject you loved…that gave you zero career prospects. Or maybe you never even finished high school, let alone college.

Whatever your situation is now, you *can* have a career you really love that pays the bills and keeps you happy. It took me three tries, but the third one truly was a charm—that’s when I made the switch into tech.

And guess what? In the tech world, nobody has ever asked about my degree. Showing I had the skills was enough to get me the job, and I’m not alone. In the tech industry, your skills and your work count for far more than any diploma.

Here are 25 actual job listings in tech you can get without going back to school. You can take some of them on with fresh new skills, while others will require a bit of experience in the field.
