Recently, Glassdoor.com published an article called 9 Hot Jobs for Workers Without a Bachelor’s Degree and, wouldn’t you know it — you can become qualified for (or move up in) several of those jobs through an education at DCCCD! Here’s the full scoop:
1. Sales Associate
You can get an associate degree in sales and marketing through Brookhaven, Cedar Valley and El Centro. We offer two-year associate degrees in business marketing and fashion marketing. Additionally, we also have certificates for students interested in customer service, sales marketing and more.
2. Property Manager
Texas property managers need to have a broker’s license, since property management is considered a real estate activity. You can learn about real estate broker education requirements and take classes to help move you toward that goal through the real estate programs at North Lake or Cedar Valley. Both colleges offer options ranging from an associate degree in applied sciences or a real estate certificate, as well as licensure as a broker, salesperson or real estate agent.
3. Radiology Tech
Radiology technicians work with patients to produce x-rays for diagnostic purposes. They may also keep patient records, adjust and maintain the machines and eventually work their way up to management of a radiology department. You can get a radiology tech degree from either Brookhaven or El Centro in just two years and start a great career fast, with an average radiology tech starting salary in north Texas of about $37,000 per year. Additionally, you can advance your radiologic sciences career over time through continued education and specializations.
