Have you ever wanted a job that pays you a lot of money but doesn’t make you want to pull your hair out?
The Occupational Information Network (ONET) recently released a list of the most and least stressful jobs in the world.
The stress level for each job is rated from 0 to 100, with 100 being the most stressful. In order to figure out what jobs are stressful, ONET looked at some of the factors that contribute to stress.
This included the amount of criticism the average worker would have to face. The survey also look at how often the job requires people to act calmly and effectively in situations that involve high levels of stress.
None of the jobs on the list are “stress free”. You’re going to experience some amount of stress no matter where you work. And some companies may be more stressful to work in than other companies.
