While all jobs come with their own level of stress, new research shows some have it more than others.
How would you begin to work out who had the most stressful job?
No easy task I would imagine but there is always someone somewhere up for the task!
Apparently CareerCast’s ranking system for stress takes into account 11 different job demands that are expected to cause stress: amount of travel, promotion prospects, deadlines, working in the public eye, competitiveness, physical demands, environmental conditions, hazards encountered, own life risk, life of another at risk and meeting the public.
A high score was awarded if a particular demand was a major part of the job, fewer points were awarded if the demand was a small part of the job, and no points were awarded if that demand was not normally required.
This is what they found see if your job is there:
The 10 most stressful jobs for 2014 are:
- Enlisted military personnel
- Military general
- Airline pilot
- Event coordinator
- Public relations executive
- Corporate executive (senior)
- Newspaper reporter
- Police officer
- Taxi driver
And this year’s top least stressful jobs are:
- Hair stylist
- University professor (tenured)
- Medical records technician
- Multimedia artist
- Drill-press operator
Would you have put those jobs in the same order? I certainly didn’t.
Oh well goes to show what I know!
