Posted: Updated:

If you're thinking about a career change, you may have to go back to school to get a higher paying job.  But that doesn't mean years and years of schooling to make a lot more money. Yahoo compiled several jobs you can get with two-year community college degrees.

Full-time workers in the U-S earn an estimated average of $20.90 an hour.  How would you like to increase that by 50 percent?  Yahoo came up with seven two-year degrees and the $30 plus an hour careers that go along with them.  They include:

  • A loan officer.. someone who helps people navigate the process of borrowing money..  with an average hourly wage of $30.39.
  • Yahoo says the market for nurses is expected to grow by 22 percent by 2018.  They make on average about $32 an hour.
  • If you're into fashion trends, and want to make a career out of it, a fashion designer can pull in an average of more than $35 an hour.

Make more money without going into debt with student loans to pay for a bachelor's or master's degree.

Go here to check out some other careers that pay 30 dollars or more an hour with two year degrees.
