According to this article, these are the best jobs in America.
Take a looksee! According to the article, online employees are the best because that area is fast-growing and has many opportunities. Personally, it probably has a lower level of stress as well. Most of you know that I am working towards getting my MD. Those fields are generally in the middle. They are stressful and require more school than many of the other occupations.
UPDATE: The article I previously linked to including this lovely picture was apparently due to an at home scammer! Figures. I liked that image. The link to the original article is here:
The following commentary is assuming the picture has some validity.
The one profession that caught my eye was the obstetrician/gynecologist and the general physician. These are the two areas of medicine that I was interested in. The general physician, according to the image, has a high satisfaction rating. I am assuming this is due to patient/physician interaction. I can remember by childhood pediatrician (okay so she wasn’t a general physician) and how she knew everything about me and practically watched me grow up. There is a connection there.
What I am guiltily excited about is the salary of the OB/GYN. It is healthy salary. Why am I excited? I will be able to pay back my loans! Ah, you thought I just wanted to get rich? Nope. There are plenty more ways to do so through much easier avenues.
Another thing to look at is the breakdown of the work force by gender. There are still less women in the work force than men. GAH. There is still much work to do. The gap is closing, however. I am excited about that.
Also, there are more black women in the workforce than black men. OH MY GOODNESS NO. This has to change. Out of the four ethnicities displayed, this is the only category that displays this phenomenon. I am not going to even begin to attempt to list the possible reason for this because I have not researched it and don’t want to dwell on it either.
As usual the medical field is pretty safeguarded against changes in the economy and fairs pretty well. Yay for my future!
Is your dream job up there? How did it do recently?
