When training for a career, what is the fastest training program and field?

What types of careers are there where you can be trained in under six months and still manage to make over 40K? I have a bachelors degree in History, and a very large student loan. Is there any job out there that does not require you to train for another 2 years by going back to college?

I have spent the past 5 years in school, so I really do not want to go back. However, I also do not want to be a secretary again. I have also lost interest in being a teacher--(too much overtime and not enough me time.) Does anyone know of a good website that will help history major's find jobs specific to their degree?

(I also do not want to do a home based business as there are too many scams out there.)

What is the highest salary range that a medical transcriptionist can make on a full time schedule while working from home? Help.

    You haven't told us what KIND of "medical career" you are looking for, so there isn't much help we can offer to you. Sorry. UCSF has one of the top med schools in the country, so you are very lucky to be fairly close to that.
