Anyone else surprised by this?
I mean, I get the occasional stress and frustration of the job. People not calling you back… asking difficult questions of someone who doesn’t want to answer… covering a emotional, heart-wrenching topic. But I must say that when I was a reporter, I absolutely loved my job.
(I guess now, technically, I’d be classified as an “editor,” according to this survey. #183.)
But am I a minority here, or are auditors (#280) and concierges (#245) and “internists – general” (#115) — what’s an internist? an intern? — really more satisfied with their jobs than journalists?
Although, I guess the data isn’t from an overly scientific survey:
The following career ratings represent averages taken from the responses of 13,871 MyPlan.com users during registration.
Users were asked to rate how happy they were in their current occupation by indicating that they were either “Very Happy,” “Happy,” “Mixed / Neutral,” “Not Happy,” or “Miserable.”
The scores below are normalized on a 100-point scale with 0 being “Miserable” and 100 being “Very Happy”.
