Are You Sure You Want to be a Cowboy? Careerjournal Explores the Best and Worst Jobs

CareerJournal | We Ask: What Are Some Of the Best and Worst Jobs?

What did you dream of being when you were a child? A ballerina? A cowboy? Well, according to and author, Les Krantz, those jobs and others aren't as wonderful as we once dreamed.

When people are working full time -- perhaps in a job that they don't particularly enjoy -- it's easy to imagine that the proverbial "grass may be greener" for those in other careers. But unless they are peppered with questions, it's difficult to find out what their work is really like. How stressful is the work, what's the work environment like and is there room for growth?

Six main factors were used to judge a job: income, stress, physical demands, outlook, security and work environment. Assumptions were admittedly made along the way in determining the list of the "best" and the "worst."

Still, the results will perhaps make your "boring" office job look a little more desirable. Take a look at the full article here.
