Newspaper Reporter Named One of 2014′s Most Stressful Jobs

Dear readers, have pity on newspaper reporters, for they have one of the most stressful jobs in the nation. That’s according to careercast.com, at least.

Careercast’s report took into account amount of travel, deadlines, working in the public eye, danger to self and more, and found that working for a paper will be the eighth most stressful job to have during 2014.

Other jobs listed in the top 10 include police officer, firefighter, airline pilot and event coordinator. The last one seems out of place, but think about it. Have you ever tried getting more than two of your friends to agree on where to eat dinner? It’s a nightmare! Especially if you’re friends don’t just shut the hell up and do what you want to do.

The most stressful job in 2014 was “enlisted military,” which is definitely correct. In fact, it should probably just keep the top slot until the end of time.

See below for the entire list of the most stressful jobs.

Newspaper Reporter Named Worst Career of 2013

In a new survey, newspaper reporter is ranked as the worst career to have in 2013. The research was conducted by Careercast.com, which listed 200 careers, based on “physical demands, work environment, income, stress, and hiring outlook.” Newspaper reporter came in at 200 out of 200.

Here are some jobs supposedly better than working for a newspaper:

    • Cashier (No word on where, because working at a Walmart has got to be worse than being a reporter. Right? Right???)
    • Oil Rig Worker (Even dudes stranded in the ocean covered in oil are thankful they’re not working for a paper)
    • Taxi Driver (A cabbie in midtown would rather take you to Mt. Vernon than write for a newspaper)
    • Podiatrist (Nasty feet are somehow preferred over a boring beat)
    • Disc Jockey (We refuse to believe this)
