If you don’t have a college degree, finding a job can be tough — especially if you’re looking for one that gives you the flexibility to work from home.

“We find that the most commonly posted work-from-home jobs often require a college degree, with many in the fields of medicine, technology and finance requiring higher education and training,” says Daniel Culbertson, an economist with job-search behemoth Indeed.

“This may make landing a work-from-home job difficult for someone without higher education, which of course is unfortunate for those who may be seeking such work due to being a caretaker, or perhaps being in a remote location.”

Luckily, we’ve got the lowdown on the jobs out there for those who choose to avoid the plague of student debt and jump right into the workforce.

Culbertson, using Indeed’s wealth of data, came up with the top nine work-from-home jobs you can land without a college degree.
