The Best and Worst Jobs



This is an article about a study done by CareerCast.com in what the "best and worst" jobs to have right now, in the short and long term. They take in account things such as salary, availability, stress, safety, etc. I'm posting this because I have the best one.

I don't know how I feel about that list....I think that they threw in some categories (ie safety) that could easily blow some of those out of the water. Obviously your not going to get hurt in a desk job. And other factors like stress are completely relative. It was listing fields, not specific jobs or task. So the stress variable (among others) is highly subjective.

Needless to say, I don't think anyone considers being a historian a hot job.

Indeed. But it's safe to say that Wall Street executives usually have higher stress levels at work than, say, a retail clerk.

Even this is debatable....I think being a clerk would be more stress for me personally, having to deal with people? No thanks
