HARTFORD, CT (WFSB) -

A recent study shows the most stressful jobs in United States include firefighter, member of the military and airline pilot.

A 2014 report for Careercast.com looked into the factors that make a profession stressful.

The following factors were used to determine how stressful a profession is:

  • Travel (the more travel, the higher the stress)
  • Growth potential (dead-end jobs tend to create more stress)
  • Deadlines
  • Working in the public eye
  • Competitiveness within the organization
  • Physical demands
  • Environmental conditions
  • Own life at risk
  • Hazards encountered
  • Meeting the public
  • Life of another is at risk

Following the study, being an enlisted member of the United States military was determined to be the most stressful job while an audiologist was considered the least stressful.

"If your life is already filled with stress, you might want to consider a profession that offers job security, a good hiring outlook and salary but few physical demands, deadlines and danger," said Tony Lee, the publisher at Careercast.com.
