Don't let that article dictate your life. Stay positive. They're YOUR interests and you shouldn't regret them.

As long as they are happy with his/her job and make good money then who cares. Maybe the article will make others not want to pursue whatever ops career is, and then op will be needed more in his/her line of work. Just looking on the bright side.

Exactly; if you're going to be in a profession for your whole life, the only thing that really matters is that YOU enjoy it. What other people think is unimportant.

#1, I don't think the OP would have submitted this as an FML if he didn't think the list was correct. Most people find engineering extremely boring, but I find it exciting, and I don't give a shit what "most people" think.

Unless you're going into a dying industry, stay the course. Employment trends can change from year to year and your chosen field could be on the upswing by the time you graduate.

Yes. I hate opinionated articles that pretend they're objective. It me just want to find that writer and punch him in the face, even in cases where his opinion is the same as mine.

That's exactly what I was thinking, 71. It was most likely an article stating that those certain professions are the hardest to make a career out of, rather than the likability or enjoyment level of said career paths. I think OP is worried they won't be able to get a job in the field they studied instead of worrying about liking the job they've chosen.

One list I read had my field as the highest rate of unemployment (15% unemployment rate); I got a full time, unionized job with incredible benefits and retirement before I even graduated. If you're good at what you do and are passionate about it, you'll find a job. If you're not good at it...are you sure you're in the right field?

#49 I couldn't disagree with you more. i'm a Software Developer and I love it, I go to work and solve coding puzzles for eight hours, then get paid well for it and have beautiful work to show for it. The day flies by and doesn't feel like work, and when I go home I do projects for myself, just like my coworkers. It's possible to make money doing what you love. You just have to work hard to get to that point. If you love playing video games then go to school until you can test them or design the

well, not exactly. If you find a job you love, you're just making money by doing something that you find fun and enticing. I guess you really don't work if you love it, although I'm not sure what you mean by literal meaning. #49

"Worst jobs" lists generally mean the jobs that have too MUCH competition. That's what makes them "worst" because it means you'll have a hard time finding work and it won't pay well.

Just remember that a lot of these "top tens" lists are written by people who've never stepped foot into your kind of work envirinment.

True, they're usually written by the job placement people at the welfare offices, the true experts in who's not gonna find decent paying work.

do what makes you happy! even if it is being a garbage man, or whatever other jobs are on that list

These rankings are based on median salary, projected growth, and overall job satisfaction among employees. Garbage men/women get paid pretty well and are always in demand because people think the job is gross. Truth is, my dad does it for the university 2 days per week and loves sitting in his climate controlled truck, listening to music. It beats the rest of his work for the grounds department--out in the weather on heavy equipment.
