Worst Job in America: Newspaper Reporter

Do you think your job is the worst job in America? Well, a popular job site has released its latest list of the best and worst.

 

CareerCast.com's Jobs Rated 2013 rankings takes a look at 200 careers -- evaluating them using criteria like income potential, growth and outlook, and stress level.

 

So who fared the best?

 

At the top of the list: Actuary, followed by biomedical engineer, software engineer, audiologist, and financial planner.

 

And as for the five worst:

 

Newspaper reporter takes the cake -- followed by lumberjack, enlisted military personnel, actor, and oil rig worker.

 

CareerCast says low salary prospects, tight deadlines, a 24/7 work environment, and a poor growth outlook pushed newpaper reporter to the very bottom of the list.

 

By contrast, actuaries are in high demand, enjoy a great work environment, and carry a median annual salary of almost $88,000.
