Paper Reporter Among Most Stressful Jobs
What do a newspaper reporter, a police officer and an airline pilot have in common? They are among the most stressful jobs around in 2014 according to a new report from CareerCast.
CareerCast ranked Newspaper reporter as the eighth most stressful job, just ahead of police officer and just behind senior-level corporate executive. The current state of the newspaper industry and its lack of job security were likely the biggest factors in its ranking, since reporters certainly don’t face the on-the-job danger as police officers.
The median salary for reporter’s is also low, about two-thirds the median salary for police officers and less than a quarter of the median pay for execs.
The most stressful job: enlisted military. The least stressful: audiologist.
