CNBC says that being an advertising executive is suuuper stressful. We hear it’s a breeze, what with the lunches and booze and cubicle sex. What could be stressful about all that?

“Although not physically demanding, work in advertising is emotionally and mentally stressful. Competition and the pressure of acquiring and maintaining major accounts forces executives in this field to work long and irregular hours. The work requires a high level of creativity, meeting deadlines, close attention to detail and self-motivation.”

You can thank CareerCast for determining this ranking. But do you agree that Public Relations Officer should fall at #8? CNBC and CareerCast do. Point, sharks.
