Top-paying jobs for community college grads
Landing a high-paying job after graduation doesn’t always depend on four-year or graduate degrees.
Some college students taking the shorter, less-expensive paths to their degrees are finding much success in their chosen careers.

Forbes listed out the top 10 best-paying jobs for community college grads, with the top job as an air traffic controller earning $108,000.

Forbes ranked nuclear technicians at number six with a median salary of $68,090, and registered nurses at number seven with a median salary of $64,690.
