Todd’s Take: Be Nice To Me! ‘Radio Broadcaster’ Makes List of 10 ‘Most Stressful Jobs’
"Why so stressed", you ask?
Because... I'm a radio broadcaster. "Prove it," you say? O.K.
Other than anecdotal evidence of my own life in radio (which now includes medication for high blood pressure!) I don't have any "proof" - until now, that is!
They used 11 different kinds of job demands to come up with their list, as follows:
travel, deadlines, working in the public eye, competitiveness, physical demands, environmental conditions, hazards encountered, the life of oneself or others at risk, meeting and interacting with customers and/or the public, and the potential for job growth.
Not surprisingly, active military, L.E.O.'s and fire fighters are all at the top, for obvious reasons. Good thing I married my wife who is a hair dresser. They rank number four in the "LEAST Stressful" category so we balance each other out nicely!
