Jobs That Are Most Stress Free And The Brighest

By Staff Reporter

Stress at work is just inevitable. Each work has its own stress level that can be different from one another. From the many jobs provided out there, some jobs are considered as the most stress-free.

According to Careercast, there are 11 factors that influence stress level at work. Those are travel required; growth potential; deadlines; working in the public eye; competition in the field; physical demands; environmental conditions; hazards encountered on a regular basis; own life at risk; lives of others at risk; and meeting or interacting with the public at large.

These aspects are used to measure the Jobs Rated stress rankings, which also results in a list of the least stressful jobs in 2016. What to note from this report is that least stressful does not mean these jobs are less important or easy. However, they have supportive atmospheres, which are more conducive compared the other jobs, including having a job in a lab setting and office, or a job that require one-on-one interaction.

Among the 200 jobs analyzed, 10 jobs that are the most stress free with each Rated Stress Score and annual income are; Information Security Analyst (3.80, $88,890), Diagnostic Medical Sonographer (4.00, $62.540), University Professor Tenured (6.94, $70,790), Hair Stylist (7.47, $23,200), Medical Records Technician (7.55, $35,900), Medical Laboratory Technician (8.98, $49.310), Jeweler (9.10, $36, 870), Audiologist (9.30, $73,060), Dietitian (10.23, $56,950), and Librarian (10.58, $56,170). 

Meanwhile, Forbes releases a list of 10 jobs that will give the brightest future. This finding is derived from a report by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics today. There are significant increases of the employment numbers from year to year.

The result of the 10 brightest jobs with the growth percentage from 2010 to 2020 are: Personal Care Aides (+70.5%), Home Health Aides (+69.4%), Registered Nurse (+26%), Heavy and Tractor-trailer Truck Drivers (+20.6%), Postsecondary Teachers (+17.4%), Retail Salesperson (+16.6%), Office Clerk (+16.6%), Customer Service Representatives (+15.5%), Laborers and Freight, Stock and Material Movers (+15.4%), and Combined Food Preparation and Serving Workers (+14.8%).   

There are also 5 new trends that have been identified by Glassdoor through the Independent, related to the jobseekers' behavior. It is derived from the survey done to more than 2,000 people last December.

The result shows that job seekers will go through the internet and do research more intensively. As for the employers, those who give more transparency to their employees will have bigger chances to be selected by potential candidates. There will also be more opportunities for women to get equal pay and promotions. Besides that, jobseekers are also more concerned about the benefits and perks they will get from their jobs. And the last one, job hunting through mobile devices will even be more popular, thanks to the job searching application technology.
