Reporter (newspaper)

Worst job ranking 1

In 2012, Forbes said that being a journalist is one of the best jobs around, for a journalist constantly learns new things, gets paid to read quite a bit and meets interesting personalities and celebrities.

Come 2013, working as a newspaper reporter is the worst job, at least according to CareerCast website. And probably here are some reasons:

  • With low starting pay, you will struggle to make both ends meet
  • High stress/ more hours at work and less time with family
  • Dwindling budgets, constant staff reduction
  • Competition from Internet-based websites
  • No day offs as you have to constantly hunt for news and ideas
