Want a Six-Figure Income Without Getting a College Degree of Any Kind? Here Is How

Copyright © 2007 Ed Bagley

As someone who has 5,000+ high-end clients who are interested in jobs and careers, I paid attention Tuesday when
I came across a story about six-figure incomes by Laura Morsch of CareerBuilder.com.

According to Laura Morsch and the United States Bureau of Labor Statistics, “physician jobs dominate the list of the nation’s highest-paying positions, holding 9 of the top 10 most lucrative jobs.”

Morsch reminds us that there are other high-paying jobs in our economy.

“Although statistically more education means better pay,” says Morsch, “you can land a very high-paying job with just a bachelor’s degree and considerable work experience.”

She then goes on to list these 9 examples: Chief Executive at $140,000, Airline Pilot at $135,000, Dentist at $134,000, Lawyer at $111,000, Air Traffic Controller at $106,000, Engineering Manager at $105,000, Computer and Information Systems Manager at $102,000, Marketing Manager at $102,000 and Astronomer at $101,000.

I have clients making
six-figure incomes in all of Morsch’s examples, however, you need more than a bachelor’s degree to realistically become a Dentist, Lawyer or an Astronomer; therefore, they are not good examples.

I have a client making $350,000 a year with a high school diploma.
I have another client making $144,000 who is a high school graduate with two additional years of technical training. A third client is making $250,000 with a high school diploma only. All three of these examples are men.

Men can make excellent money with a high school diploma in a number of occupations.

Women can also make $100,000+ with a high school diploma, but they tend to do it generally in three ways:

1) They own their own business, usually a small business that is very profitable. Some research organizations report that there are more small business owners making
six-figures-plus than
in any other job or occupation.

2) They work on a commision basis rather than having a salary. A sharp woman can many times outsell a man because of the dynamics between the sexes. A sharp woman calling on a male client many times gets more time and attention than a male calling on the same client.

3) They work in a financially-related position, such as a stockbroker, mortgage banker, mortgage broker, loan officer or chief financial officer.

Here is some information you can use if you are
a high school graduate and have zero interest
in getting a bachelor’s degree at this point in your work career: go into sales if you have any people skills or personality.

Sales is the second highest paid profession in the world, and it does not usually require a college degree. There are some corporate sales jobs that do require a degree, but there are many more opportunities available if you can generate sales production.

There is not a single business in America that cannot benefit from more sales, and almost every one will pay for sales production.

Here is some even better news: If you are selling and producing big time and the owner or company is too cheap to compensate you at the level you should be compensated at ($100,000+++), dump the owner or company and sell for someone else.

A far better idea would be to start your own business, go into competition directly against the cheap owner or company that would not pay you, and wipe them off the map.

There really is no reason you should be working for someone else anyway. Working in your own business can be an outstanding deal. You call your own shots. You will not fire yourself, lay yourself off, or deny yourself promotions, fat bonuses for production, outstanding benefit packages, and a lot of time off to enjoy your money and family.

The nine examples listed above have 7 positions that amount to no more than hired help, that includes the Chief Executive position. Only the Dentist and Lawyer positions might be either self-employed or hired help.

All nine examples cited by Morsch and the Bureau of Labor Statistics have more stress than anyone needs and are labor intensive. Even the Dentist and Lawyer positions, which might be self-employed, require them to report to work or not get paid. If a Mac truck runs over either them, their income stops in a heartbeat.

Has anyone ever heard of income-producing investments when these job opportunities come up? Income producing assets allow you to take possession of your own time while your investment throws off the income to fund your lifestyle without working a job.

It might be fancy to have any of those nine jobs with status and making $100,000 a year. Some people would rather make $250,000 a year and not have a job, have a boss, and deal with the stress.

Here is a rare career path: Own the business, company or organization and hire the six-figure people in the examples above to work for you. There are people who would gladly pay the above examples their listed wages when they could make $250,000 free and clear and not work.

Who needs status and aggravation when you have money?

The Resume Process

If you have faced increased competition in the workforce during a recession or in boom times, and have been unable to get a job, you need a more effective resume that will market you as an absolutely invaluable employee.

At Quality Resumes by Ed Bagley, you will never have to worry about trying to perfect your own resume again. You’ll love my incredibly simple marketing strategy that allows you to secure job interviews, instantly dominate your competition, get an offer, and start making money in your new job.

Five Reasons Why a Top-Notch, Quality Resume is Crucial for Your Future Success

1) You need to get attention.

Potential employers do not know how competent you are, or how your skill set and abilities could fit their needs. They are not going to show up on your doorstep to offer you a job. You have to announce yourself to the world of possible employers. You have to leapfrog over the competition. Today in America, millions of workers are unemployed or underemployed, and many are competing for the same position you want.  So how can you leapfrog the competition?

2) You need a quality resume, and have a pro’s pro do it for you.

The way to leapfrog over the competition and get the attention is to market yourself at a higher professional level.  To market yourself at a higher professional level, you need not just any resume, but a quality resume that is head-and-shoulders above your competitors.  If 200 potential hires throw their hat in the ring for a paying position, your resume needs to be, hands down, the best resume among the 200 that are received. You could hire a professional resume service with a professional resume writer.

First impressions are certainly important as the first impression many times just also happens to be the last impression and the only impression.

3)  You need to secure a job interview.

Remember that, 999 times out of a 1,000, an interview precedes a job offer in the hiring process. If you cannot land an interview, no matter how gifted you are, your application process is dead in the water.  When unemployed or underemployed, too many potential candidates focus on getting another job, when their focus should be on getting interviews. To get that all-important interview, you need a quality resume that creates a positive impression of you—sight unseen, up front, ink on paper, so they are excited about you, and want to interview you. After you land an interview, how do you sell yourself?

4) You need to shine when the bright lights are focused on you.

Most people are uneasy when walking into a job interview.  Let’s face it. You have no opportunity at an interview to prove yourself on the job.  Most often, people you do not know will determine whether you get a job offer or not.  Someone else will decide, during your interview, whether you will be able to feed your family, and pay your bills on time.

My job is to turn your negative energy into positive energy when it counts.  To do that, you need more knowledge and understanding about the job marketplace, and how it operates, because the current marketplace and job hiring tactics are not going to change to suit your needs. You are ultimately going to have to change and adapt to meet marketplace practices and standards to successfully secure a job offer, and get the job you want.

Read and think very carefully about these two statements because they apply exactly to 99% of the clients who come to me for help:

What you did to get where you are at will not be enough to get you where you want to go.

To get what you have never had, you must do what you have never done.

5)  What you don’t know can hurt you.

The old adage, “What you don’t know won’t hurt you,” is terrible advice when applied to writing a resume, or having a job interview.  What you do not know can cost you a job offer and a job in the same instant.  It is a given that you must use the force of your personality and verbal skills to sell yourself at an interview, but that is not enough.  You also need to be well-informed about what to expect, and what to do when the pressure is on.

Don’t remain stuck in an underemployed rut. The more knowledge and understanding you have of resume writing and the job marketplace, the sooner you are going to get where you want to go.

Here’s the process you can expect when you hire me to write a resume for you:

Information Gathering

After our personal face-to-face interview (if you are within driving distance), I will email you an information-gathering form that is designed to help me showcase your talents and abilities. After acquiring information that reflects positively upon you,
I use my judgment, writing talent, experience, expertise and presentation skills to figure out not just what to say, but how to say it.

Online Hiring – Many Job Hunters Are Frustrated With the Continual Digitized ”Depersonalization” of the Hiring Process (Part 4 of a 4-Part Series)

Copyright © 2007 Ed Bagley

Many clients of
mine have filled out customized online forms tailor-made to help them only to find out later that they were receiving calls on their cell phones from telemarketers, and needing to get a bigger mailbox as suddenly they were inundated
with unwanted advertisements.

How did those advertisers get such pertinent information? Answer: the good fairy brought it to them while they were sleeping, in other words, they bought it from the source of the customized online information form.

Stafford continues her groundbreaking story with this piece of riveting information:

“John Sullivan, a management professor at San Francisco State University, says most interviews are as valuable as Ouija boards in measuring whether a person will be good on the job.

“Interviewers ask the wrong questions, and job candidates can lie, or simply not shine when on the job they’d do quite well, he (Sullivan) says—all the better for online assessments. Companies—especially those that hire thousands of workers and have high turnover—are turning to a range of computer-based filters to pare down candidates to a manageable number.”

I could not disagree more with what Sullivan has to say
as a management professor who is likely quoted as an expert.

It may well be that Sullivan himself does
not have the necessary skills and competence
to get anything out of a face-to-face interview with a potential hire
in his university department. That
would be his problem.

Stafford does end her story with this observation: “Many job hunters are frustrated with the digitized ‘depersonalization’ of the hiring process.” Amen.

Just when personnel types and those hiring should be asking
more questions of candidates in an increasingly complex world they are turning to forms for the answers. Good luck and God speed.

If potential candidates hope to represent my companies or me they had better be ready
to sit down, look me
in the eye, and sell themselves.

In most cases I am old enough to be their father. In many cases I am old enough to be their grandfather. My children call me a fossil, but I still read people so well one-on-one that I would not trust an online form to separate the wheat from the chaff.
