2013’s Most Stressful Jobs

By on

Forbes has a list from CareerCast. Here’s how it made its picks…

To gauge which jobs are the most stressful, CareerCast considered the 200 professions in its database and focused on 11 different job demands that it deemed likely to provoke stress, including travel, growth potential, competitiveness, physical demands, hazards, environmental conditions and risk to one’s own life or to others’.

At the top are enlisted military and military generals, followed by firefighters and pilots. Those are no-brainers, but next are PR and company executives.

Photojournalists and reporters also make the list, along with cab drivers and – somehow below all of those – police officer.

Comments & discussion

We welcome your opinions, but let’s keep it civil. Like many businesses, we reserve the right to refuse service to anyone. In our case, that means those who communicate by name-calling, racism, using words designed to hurt others or generally acting like an uninformed bully. Also, comments that include links to email addresses or commercial websites typically aren't posted. This isn't a place to advertise your business.
