Newspaper Reporter Now Ranks as Second Worst Career

I saw this piece about the job of a newspaper reporter now being ranked as the second worst career in the nation:

This is something for PR peeps to keep in mind as they pitch. We need to take it easy on those overwrought reporters. Yes, sure, sometimes we think we have a difficult time getting a story in front of them, but if your job was viewed as worse than these, you’d know you have it rough: 

  • Appliance repair person (#73). 
  • Dishwasher (#124). 
  • Sewage plant operator (#141)

And, my favorite, Public Relations Executive, ranked #140. Guess it could be worse–right, reporters?! Image
