I had to check where us medical science kind of people fall.
Biologist was fourth, but it was meant for green biologists, not the lab kind. According to this I guess I should be happiest when doing statistics, and the least happy when doing surgery. That doesn't sound right. Honestly, physiologist at place 41 doesn't seem too bad. But what does it mean?
Luckily there is a methods section. Each job out of the two hundred were scored in five different categories. Most are pretty straight forward.
- Environment: Is it hazardous, confined, etc.
- Income: Is it high?
- Outlook: Can you get a job?
- Physical Demands: sedentary = best??? heavy lifting = worst.
The real problem is the category:
In conclusion, it's nice that they try to investigate this kind of thing, but it makes no sense to rank them in order of a composite of these different categories. It might make sense from a publicists perspective, but certainly not from any job seekers perspective.
