CareerCast.com Reports on Most and Least Stressful Professions
Date:2/18/2009

CARLSBAD, Calif., Feb. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- When US Airways pilot Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger landed his jet safely in the Hudson River, he proved himself to be a great performer under stress. He also illustrates why commercial airline pilots are ranked as one of the nation's most stressful professions, according to the "2009 Jobs Rated Report," an in-depth look at 200 jobs by CareerCast.com, the nation's newest job search portal.

Topping the list as the nation's most stressful job is surgeon, followed closely by commercial airline pilot and photojournalist. Since surgeons take a person's life in their hands, it's not surprising that stress plays a big role. Commercial airline pilots are responsible for the lives of their passengers and crew. Photojournalist's jobs can require them to be on the frontline of every catastrophe, from wars to hurricanes to riots. One common bond between all three is their demanding schedules, which often change at the last minute and may require extended periods away from home or long shifts.

"The type of stress surgeons face when operating is very different from the stress a pilot feels when landing in a storm and from how a photojournalist feels while taking pictures during a fire or hurricane," says Tony Lee, publisher of CareerCast.com. "But all three bear more stress than any other job in the country, which is why they rank at the top of our list."

The criteria used by CareerCast.com researchers to determine the most and least stressful jobs include 21 different job demands which can be expected to invoke stress. Each demand was assigned a range of points, and a high score was given if the demand was a major part of the job. Photojournalists, for example, who often face daily deadlines, received the maximum points in this category, while actuaries received the least since they seldom have deadlines. Occupations are ranked using data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics and the U.S. Census Bureau, as well as information provided by trade associations and industry groups.

Rounding out the list of the five most stressful jobs are advertising account executives and real estate agents.

Among the least stressful jobs are actuary, dietician, computer systems analyst, statistician and astronomer. To see the full rankings of all 200 jobs, go to CareerCast.com or JobsRated.com.
