Do you think you have one of the best jobs, or do you have to drag yourself to your miserable job?
CareerCast.com ranked the 200 most popular jobs in the U.S., ranked from best to worst, based on these categories:
physical demands, work environment, income, stress, and hiring outlook.
BEST JOB: ACTUARY (what now?!!)
I had to look that up, too. An actuary calculates financial risks, usually for an insurance company or a big business. It's a high-paying, stable job.
WORST JOB: NEWSPAPER REPORTER
Ranked bottom of the list at #200 because the hiring outlook is low, and even if you land a job, it doesn't pay well.
I looked up a DJ: #179 out of 200. Hmmm. Bet you thought it was higher!
Hiring outlook is low, and (believe it or not!) income is on the lower scale. (We work for concert tix!!)
