..without a degree/professional training in a specific area.
You know they have probably 10yrs of experience and are good at the jobs they do.
How much should they expect and where is the 'ceiling'.
I ask because I kinda of feel I have reached my ceiling in terms of renumeration without getting qualifications or becoming self employed but i want more money.

how long is a piece of string, really. There are so many self-made billionaires in the world, didn't Rupurt Murdoch not go to university? That's still possible these days, i went to school with a guy who went out selling cars after school finished and now owns multiple dealerships.

Depends on the job.
Would vary greatly between say a checkout job or mail carrier or council worker, can you be more specific?

I don't know really. It all depends on the type of job you do and what it entails. I have friends who don't have professional training or a degree and earn approx. 40k a year....then I have a friend who excels at his job with no degree or professional training but works his butt off and earns around 120-150k a year but hopes to be earning a lot more than that by the end of the year.

Sorry, prob should have been more specific..
I mean working for someone else - not working for yourself or starting a business on your own kind of thing.
As far as area - I don't know really I spose an sort of office work or corporate work (but with corporate work how far can you really go with a degree?).
I don't mean labours/shift workers who have a high wage IYKWIM.
I dunno, I earn $60k pa + super working as a PA. I had a more pretigous job that ppl working along side had degrees for but was only earning $50k - had I stayed in Mel I probably could have worked my way up slightly but not as much as someone with a degree IYKWIM.
I don't think that $60k isn't good, I think it is pretty decent to be a PA. I am in teh country too so there not as many options as Mel.
I just feel like there is no room to increase this wage being a PA/office person??

Working for someone else in a general type job, I think most ppl hit a ceiling of 50-60k. Obviously, there are exceptions though.

that's pretty much my ceiling and i have post grad qualifications. So, it depends on your industry as well. In mine the unqualified ceiling would be about 40k. To earn more money i would have to move into a managerial position which i wouldn't like at all. So i just made sure i shacked up with someone with good earning potential

In NSW, approx. 85k is the ceiling for a teacher without any promotion. That's pretty good, but it takes a long time to get there and a lot of people leave teaching before getting there.
My partner earns almost twice as much as that and has no formal qualifications.
I think it depends on the degree and the kind of job. Teaching/nursing etc. won't make you rich lol, but other degrees might if you play your cards right.

How embarrassing, I just read the op again and notice it's without a degree and I can't delete on my phone. Sorry.
