5 Careers to Consider That Only Require an Associate's Degree

5 Careers to Consider That Only Require an Associate
Posted By: Dixie Somers on August 30, 2022

If you already have an Associate's degree or are considering earning one, this degree can help you have a solid career. In fact, you don't need to spend years and years in college to land a career you genuinely enjoy. Here are five careers for someone who has an Associate's degree.

Web Developer



If you have a knack for building websites, you might like to become a web developer. In fact, you can also design websites to make them appear aesthetically pleasing. Other tasks you may perform include writing code, monitoring website traffic, creating applications, and meeting with clients. As a web developer, you'll need to be able to handle being in front of a computer screen for hours on a regular basis.

Veterinary Technician



One way for animal lovers to work with animals all day is to become a veterinary technician. You could even work with zoo animals, farm animals, or small animals in an animal practice. A few tasks you may be doing are grooming, getting pets ready for surgery, taking X-rays, and administering medications.

Medical Assistant



If becoming a doctor isn't right for you, but you'd still like to work in the medical field, you might like to be a medical assistant.



For one, you may work in a hospital doing tasks such as measuring blood pressure, administering vaccinations, assisting doctors, and more. Indeed, you can find exceptional medical assistant programs where you can learn everything you need to pursue your dream career.

Preschool Teacher



Becoming a preschool teacher can be a great way to let your inner child out regularly and help young children learn and grow. You'll be helpful in preparing them for kindergarten, teaching simple learning skills, and tracking their school performance, among other things. As a preschool teacher, you'll need a lot of patience and understanding.

Air Traffic Controller



If actually being in an airplane sounds daunting, the career of an air traffic controller might suit you better. In this career, you'll be communicating issues such as runway closures and weather conditions to pilots. Other tasks you can perform are monitoring aircraft movement, instructing pilots about landing and takeoff, and others.

On the whole, there are plenty of careers for those who have only an Associate's degree. Not only this but it doesn't take too long to earn this degree. So after you've attended college for two years, you can find a career you love and be on a smart path to success.
