Best Job out there? - Yes, its Mathematician!

So what is the best job in the US these days?

The Wall Street Journal reported on a ranking of professions from the site  They released a study this week that evaluates 200 professions to determine the best and worst according to five criteria inherent to every job: environment, income, employment outlook, physical demands and stress.

Bottom of the list:  Lumberjack, dairy farmer and taxi driver.

Top of the list:  Mathematician (and actuary and statistician, to round out the top three) with a median annual income of over $94000, low stress, and VERY CREATIVE work (okay, the last bit is an editorial opinion.  But one of the people highlighted in the article does have very interesting projects to work on....  jussayn'.)

Give the article a read.  See where your dream job lies:

Doing the Math to Find the Good Jobs

 Personally, I agree with the top ranking.  It is a good gig!
