1. Enlisted Military Personnel

Enlisted military personnel is the most stressful job of 2013, as the men and women who volunteer in the Armed Forces are routinely placed in dangerous situations. And as the military draws down, fewer soldiers will be needed.

2. Military general

A general officer is an officer of high military ranks, usually in the army, and in some nations, the air force. The term is widely used by many nations of the world, and when a country uses a different term, there is an equivalent title given.

4. Airline Pilot

A pilot or aviator is a person actively involved in flying an aircraft. Pilot is a somewhat more precise term, as the pilot by definition directly controls the aircraft whereas the slightly broader term aviator is a person who, though actively involved in flying the aircraft, does not necessarily directly control its path.

Why it's the Most Stressful Job

1. Enlisted Military Personnel

After the protracted U.S. involvement in Iraq and Afghanistan, most of us are keenly aware of how stressful it can be to serve in the military. Many enlisted men and women risk their lives every day. Military officers may not be on the front lines but their lives are often in danger and they have a job that may be even more stressful than worrying for their own well-being: they are responsible for the lives of those under their command.

2. Public Relations Executive

Corporate executives likewise have an image that belies their work lives, says Lee. “They’re responsible for the livelihood of everyone who works at their company,” he notes. “If the company is public, they’re responsible for their shareholders.” Plus they travel constantly and work around the clock on a schedule that is not of their own making.

3. Newspaper Reporter

Then there is a profession that is close to my own, newspaper reporter, No. 8 on the list. In these times of newsroom austerity and mounting pressure to produce multi-media reports as news is breaking, while competing with lightning-fast social media and a plethora of blogs, this job deserves to be on the top ten list. Of course reporters also cover wars and assume some of the same risks as members of the military.
