Insurance agent: almost the best job ever

10 jobs that ranked higher than yours based on five environmental factors

CareerCast.com recently came out with its 2012 Jobs Rated report. It details 200 jobs ranked from best to worst based on physical demands, work environment, income, stress and hiring outlook. Use the report to get an idea of where your current occupation stands in the job market, see if switching to your dream job would be a wise move, or brag how awesome your job is to anyone with a job below yours — unless yours is last (Lumberjack, No. 200).

Insurance agent ranked 68 on the list. That means only 67 jobs, or 33.5% of the list (Mathematician, No. 10), ranked higher. Advising clients about amount and type of coverage can entail long working hours, which contributes to the job’s stress level. However, the insurance industry has a solid hiring outlook, which could help push the average annual income of $47,342 up a bit and, with hope, simultaneously lower some of that stress.
