Sports-related jobs also demand higher-than-average salaries, with average earnings of $78,455 per year, compared to the national average of $57,947.
High school graduates face an unemployment rate nearly twice that of those with a college degree in their hands — 6.1 versus 3.1 — while earning about half as much. But that doesn't mean that those with high school diplomas are chopped liver.
