PR is stressful. If you work in the field, you know that. But now, for the fourth year in a row, you have statistical proof.

CareerCast’s list of the most stressful jobs in America for 2014 puts PR executive in the No. 6 most-stressful job slot, one spot below the No. 5 position it held last year. Maybe things got a little easier for PR execs in the past year, or perhaps it’s just that much harder to be an event coordinator. That job is in the No. 5 spot now. It didn’t even show up on last year’s list.

The top of the list is full of jobs which put people in actual, physical danger, with military jobs, firefighter, and airline pilot taking the top four spots.

Also on the list are newspaper reporters, at No. 8.
