Best and Worst Jobs–It’s Looking Good for Evaluators!

Collage of a bar chart, people, arrow, computer and calendar.

I’ve always thought program evaluation is one of the best jobs in the world… and now I have the data to back it up! Check out the Wall Street Journal’s Best and Worst Jobs of 2012.

“Evaluator” wasn’t on their list, but hey, we wear a lot of different hats. Here’s how some evaluation-related jobs ranked against 200 other jobs:

  • Mathematician: #10 of 200
  • Statistician: #18
  • Sociologist: #20
  • Market research analyst: #32
  • Computer programmer: #34 (Okay let’s be honest, I only do computer programming for about 10 minutes a year…)
  • Technical writer: #37
  • Economist: #48
  • Anthropologist: #53
  • Management consultant: #57

Not so shabby!
