The 10 Most (And Least) Stressful Jobs Right Now

Ranking the most and least stressful jobs might be something of a quixotic project, but it's one the folks at CareerCast have attempted in earnest. To determine the rankings, CareerCast rated the demands of each career — including risk of death and environmental conditions — resulting in a list of which jobs are more anxiety-producing and which are, comparatively, days at the beach.

Keep in mind that this is merely one measurement system, and there are plenty of stressful jobs out there. Still, it's useful to think about; you might want to consider getting on that tenure track now!
