Best & Worst Jobs for 2014

Bo Thompson from Charlotte's Morning News posed a question this morning: "Are you doing what you wanted to do for a career?"

Prompted by the article, Ten Best and Ten Worst Jobs for 2014 released by CareerCast, it made us consider whether or not the best or worst jobs are in the eye of the beholder. 

Could you be happy as a Lumberjack? Ranked at number two-hundred, the worst job for the year due to the high risk factor in the work environment, the low pay, and the lack of job security.

CareerCast builds this list based on the two hundred most populated jobs and then ranks them using a number of factors, but they can be broken down in to four main categories: environment, income, outlook and stress.

Broadcaster is number one hundred and ninety-six, and in general we're happy people here at WBT. Just ask Bo Thompson or Chris Miller, both of whom were talking on-air this morning about what their aspirations were as kids and how it reflects with their current positions.

So whether your dreams of becoming an astronaut came to fruition or your trajectory navigated you away from the stars, take a look over the list below and see if your career is on it, for better or for worse. Then tell us: Are you doing what you wanted to? And are you happy doing it?
