There are many ways to get a job and pursue a professional career without a degree. Here are some tips to help you explore your options:
Leverage your practical skills: If you don’t have a degree, you can highlight your practical skills, such as technical or professional skills acquired during your working life, to help you find a job.
Training for manual trades: There are many manual trades that do not require a diploma, such as trades in construction, mechanics, electricity, computer maintenance, cooking. You can train on a work-study program to obtain a recognized qualification.
Training for professions in the social sector: There are many professions in the social sector, such as personal assistance professions, popular education professions, animation professions, which above all require a good relational and a motivation to help others. Short-term training is often provided to access these trades.
Going into entrepreneurship: If you are looking for a freelance career, you can consider becoming an entrepreneur. There are many financial aids and trainings that can help you start your own business.
Pass professional certifications: There are professional certifications that can allow you to access certain trades, without the need for a diploma. For example, to become a driver, the diploma will not be very useful to you, on the other hand, you will have to pass a heavy goods vehicle license which will have the equivalent of a diploma to carry out this profession. The diploma can therefore replace other certifications for certain jobs.
