Rethinking careers

Careercast.com has sorted through and ranked 200 jobs—you know, those things that many Americans either no longer have or have no chance of getting in the near future. The Web site compares core criteria such as environment, income, outlook, stress and physical demands to compile its list—and the future is bleak.

Newspaper reporter ranked 140th best job (or 61th worst, if you're that kind of person), notably surpassing undertaker but beat out by telephone operator. Photojournalist ranked 167. These rankings probably have something to do with occupational hazards like ulcers, binge-drinking and cigarettes. Toxic newsprint could also be a culprit.

It's not all bad on the media front, though. A special congratulations to Julia: Publication editor is the 31st best job. Blogger is apparently not a job at all.
