Is your job cool? Do you brag when people ask you what you do for a living? Or do you answer, and then quickly say, “Yeah. I hate it.” There are so few “cool” jobs out there but they do exist.

You might be surprised that many of these jobs don’t even require a degree. You can get trained at a community college, sometimes in under a year. Many of these programs even allow you to study on the evening and weekend, so you can study for the cool job, while still working at the uncool job.

Here are 5 cool career paths and where to start the journey:
