Choosing a career path is one of the biggest decisions you can make. Whether you're the type who "lives to work" or just "works to live," in most cases your job will consume much of your time and be a vital part of your identity. Yet despite this central role employment plays in daily life, many people wind up in a given career virtually by chance. For all those who decide on a profession at an early age, a great deal more simply select the best opportunity that comes along, regardless of their interests.
JobsRated.com offers help for uncertain job seekers by analyzing 200 different jobs according to 5 vital criteria: Stress, Work Environment, Physical Demands, Income and Outlook. In every area each job receives a specific score, and data is mined to provide the most detailed information possible – for example, rather than listing average incomes, our rankings combine each job's mid-level salary with its outlook score, which eliminates data from employees making too much or too little to provide a more accurate result (for complete details on how we score, visit the JobsRated.com Methodology Page).
By bringing data on 200 jobs into one central list and ranking them, JobsRated.com serves as a resource for anyone trying to see a clearer picture of today's uncertain job market, whether you're looking to apply to grad school or trying to decide between multiple offers. Even if you just want to know how your job stacks up against another, our rankings can help you find alternatives that may better suit you. In addition to this complete list of 200 jobs, rankings are broken into the 10 best and 10 worst professions, as well as reports based on stress, work environment, and other criteria that will debut in the coming weeks.
