The Best and Worst Jobs

You might find this interesting: in a study ranking the best and worst occupations in the US, guess where mathematicians landed!

#1.

The study was looking at job hazards, pay, stress levels, environment, and a few other factors. Take a look at it here: Doing the Math to Find the Good Jobs.

Now, this study didn't take into account an individual's likes and preferences and feelings ... If someone REALLY loves cutting timber in a forest, then obviously that's a perfect job for them. But it's still interesting to note that mathematician, statistician, biologist, software engineer, and other "thinking" jobs ranked very high.
