Last month, we broke the news that if you’re a PR executive, your job is probably pretty stressful (in case those clenched fists and the ripping out of your own hair weren’t good enough of indicators). A study of America’s most stressful jobs revealed that PR executive is No. 6 on the list.
Now, CareerBliss has released a list of the happiest careers. They surveyed nearly 60,000 employees that held more than 450 job titles.
While PR is nowhere on the list, marketing consultants are considered the 13th happiest job.
The reasoning, according to Business Insider: “Marketing consultants value their bosses more than the employees of any other job on our list, giving them an average score of 4.5 out of 5.”
Everybody gets something out the ranking. PR pros can say their job is more important because it causes more stress; marketing consultants can just be happy.
Here are the top 10 on CareerBliss’ list:
1. Research/teaching assistant
2. QA Analyst
4. Loan officer
5. Sales representative
7. HR manager
8. Software developer/engineer
10. Team leader
