I need help with figuring out what I want to do with my life. I'm 23 and while people I knew from high school are finishing up school I'm still stuck working a dead end job. I know it's my fault and now I'm finally realizing that I have to do something with my life. So what I'm asking is what career choices do I have if want job that doesn't require many years of post secondary school, that will earn me not necessarily a lot but a decent income, and most importantly a field where there are actual jobs available? At this point it doesn't really matter what line of work it is as long as I can move out of my parents house and live on my own. So what can I do?

I'm at a similar place in life and I'm considering becoming a CNC operator/programmer. I was great at programming in high school and I like to build things. Apparently those jobs are in pretty huge demand and they pay well. Same goes for OTR truckers, but that comes with a specific lifestyle. I've also considered welding and locksmithing.

Also how much more am I limited if I only have 2k saved up and can't drive?

A lot. 2k is okay for backup savings but having a reliable vehicle and the ability to drive is pretty important, unless you happen to find a job on a quick bus route. Are you currently working full time? I'm at a dead end restaurant job working 40-60 hours per week and I can afford my own apartment. If you're with your parents still, try saving something like $400 a month and once you have a comfortable cushion, buy a craigslist beater car.

My default would be something in programming. You can train yourself up in less than a year and there is always plenty of work if you're happy to move.

But you didn't really tell us anything about you. What you are interested in. What your skills are. What your situation is in terms of stability and time to teach yourself something.

There are quite a few decent paying jobs you could do, like being a real estate broker, but they are also kind of dead end.

Truth is that education is pushed on everyone for a reason and it's much easier to build a fruitful career that isn't soul crushing when you have higher education.
