Top Paying Jobs For High School Graduates In The USA

What are the top best paying jobs in computers and Information Technology that do not require a college education in the U.S.A.?

I choose Information Technology because the industry does not require extensive formal education at the college or post graduate level.

The Information Technology industry rewards talent, hard work, and initiative and does not have a set of degrees that must be acquired before one can practice in it. Compare or contrast this to careers in medicine, law and other high paying occupations.

The Information Technology Industry re-invents itself every year.
