Do You Have One of The Worst Jobs? We Do
The new list of worst jobs in America is out, and guess who's got one of the worst jobs. We Do!
Now, don't get me wrong. I love my job here at Kicks 105.5, and so does Liz, but according to the new careercast.com annual list, Radio Personality came in as one of the top 4 worst jobs in America.
Now, I guess we should be glad we're not working as Newspaper Reporters, because that was the #1 worst job for a third year in a row.
The rankings on this list were based on certain factors like salary, job prospects, and stress, which is the main reason that Radio DJ made the list. See what we go through for you each and everyday?
Many of the jobs on this year's list are well-respected professions, like members of the military and firefighters. So, you can see where the above criteria fits when it comes to stress.
Now, I'm not saying that being on the air for 4 hours a day, 5 days a week is anywhere near what a member of the military or firefighter goes through, but don't forget we are always "live", and anything can happen. There are enormous pressures. Plus, by the end of the show, we are mentally exhausted.
If you want to see some of the rest of the list, and see if your jobs on there, check out the video. Just remember what we do may be one of the worst jobs, but somebody's got to do it.
