Top Durham Jobs Open Now that Do Not Require a Degree

(The Triangle Trend) With the economy as unstable as it is right now, even the most impressive degree in the world unfortunately doesn’t secure any of us a  spot in our choice industry. Sometimes we have to take the knowledge gained from our high school years and run to the nearest hiring company. If at some point in the past, you received a high school diploma or a GED, then you’re more than qualified for plenty of entry-level and trade-based job openings. And Durham locals have a generous selection of “fair chance” jobs ready for your hire, as long as you’re willing to submit an application.
