Photojournalism 4th Most Stressful Job for 2011

CareerCast.com looked at 11 different factors that can cause stress on the job, and ranked 200 professions by how significantly these demands factor into the average workday. Factors that weighed into stress include work environment, job competitiveness, physical demands, deadlines, on-the-job dangers and even the job’s growth potential.

Yahoo!Finance posted the results today for the five most stressful jobs in America.  Number four went to Photojournalists. Being on call 24/7 and relocating to danger zones where the news breaks gives this profession a high stress score.  The news is unpredictable, and so is the job (which is also why Newscasters came in at number five on the list).

Luckily, I work well under pressure.
