Did your job make the best or worst list?

Do you have the career you always wanted?  If so do you think you have the best job in America?

Or maybe you're the opposite, where you might have the worst job in America!

The website CareerCast.com just released their list of 200 of the most popular jobs in the U.S., ranked from best to worst.  
The jobs are ranked in five categories:  Physical demands, work environment, income, stress, and hiring outlook.
The best job is ACTUARY.  If you've heard of that but aren't quite sure what it is, an actuary calculates financial risk, usually for insurance companies or other big businesses.  It's challenging, pays well, and good ones can have jobs for life.
The rest of the top 10 best jobs are biomedical engineer, software engineer, audiologist, financial planner, dental hygienist, occupational therapist, optometrist, physical therapist, and computer systems analyst.
The worst job in the country is . . . NEWSPAPER REPORTER.  Obviously.  The newspaper industry is dying, so their future is up in the air . . . and they don't get paid particularly well even if they DO have one of the few reporting jobs out there.
The 10 jobs that finished just ahead of reporter are lumberjack, enlisted military personnel, actor, oilrig worker, dairy farmer, meter reader, mail carrier, roofer, and flight attendant.
