Lumberjack

Saturday, January 31st, 2009

A career-rating group in the U.S. has crunched their numbers and come up with a list of the top 200 jobs.

Number 200 on the list – dead last – is logger/lumberjack.

The top 10 are mostly Dilbertesque jobs, like mathematician (1), actuary (2), and statistician (3).

I really doubt that the average artist (80), actor (170), choreographer (161) or even member of the clergy (70) would trade their job for that of a mathematician.

Something tells me that the study was designed by left-brain people.
