Research Shows Publicists Are Stressed

CareerCast has published a list of the top ten most stressful jobs and, perhaps not a surprise for those of you out there who have appointments with your therapists after work today, PR officer comes in at number two on their list.

“This highly-competitive field and tight deadlines keep stress at high-levels for specialists. Some PR officers, also, are required to interact with potentially hostile members of the media,” the description says.

CareerCast says that, overall, 70 percent of workers say their job causes stress, and commercial pilot comes out on top of the most stressed list. (Newscaster is number five, which may explain those “hostile members of the media” CareerCast is talking about.) But it was just a few months ago that Money magazine and Payscale.com were voting PR director among the best jobs out there. CareerCast also puts PR exec among its top 200 jobs.

Software engineer and dietitian are listed among least stressful.
