What’s a decent paying job a 28 year can get that doesn’t require a degree so that he can turn his life around and move out of his mom’s basement?

  1. I’ve always thought if I had to start from scratch I’d start by trying to get a gig as a night watchman for a year or two. You can pretty much do whatever you want 90% of the night. It’s probably hell on your health/social life though.

  2. Having to get a certification is fine. But I don’t have the money money go to college, I tried once and got nothing from or except 50k in debt lol

  3. My son started out working at a concrete plant 6 years ago, learning how to make pipeline for road/commercial construction. He started out making $12/hr and now makes $60K. He was 28 when he started.

  4. Honestly? For me it was trimming weed. Lol. I know how that sounds but it led to a chain reaction and now I’m doing pretty good.

    That being said. It depends a lot on where you are and who you are ya know?

    The real point is to just do something. That can lead to something else and so on.

  5. Truckers are in short supply. If heard that the average age for OTR truckers is nearly 50 and forms simply can’t hire enough. They are even hiring convicted felons if their probation record is clean. They are paying for all training and giving sign on bonuses after 3 & 6 months on the job.

    Alternatively, I’ve also heard that companies who make/install electrical control boards are in the same boat – far too few employees

  6. Internet scamming. It’s very easy, and very profitable. In fact you don’t even need to get out of your mother’s basement to do them.

    I have written a comprehensive book about internet scams, that is a step by step guide on how to make a good living out of them. I can sell you a copy for $150, plus $19.99 postage and handling. Think of it as an investment in your future.

  7. At 28 I was working 3 separate jobs. If you’ve got the time and inclination I’d recommend it. It allowed me to bank money and eventually buy a house.

    The downside is lack of sleep.

    You said a job without a degree, but you didn’t say anything about any skills you have. If your handy with your hands maybe a union carpenter? Train on the job? The trades are really hurting for workers and would be more than happy to train you! Great money and future without college debt!

  8. Most places need staff right now. Take your pick. I’m seeing starting wages of $17-19/hour for dishwashers and line cooks with no experience at local restaurants for example.
