Real estate agent: 2013’s happiest job

Real estate agent: 2013’s happiest job

IRVINE, Calif. – April 4, 2013 – CareerBliss, an employment website, released new data ranking the Happiest and Unhappiest Jobs in the U.S. The data from more than sixty-five thousand independent company reviews determined which jobs rank highest in happiness.

This year, Realtors rank at the top for job happiness, followed by quality assurance engineers, sales representatives and controllers who work in a company’s finance department. By contrast, teachers, nurses and attorneys rank as some of the unhappiest jobs in the U.S., with attorneys at the top of the unhappiness list.

“Real estate agents have definitely weathered quite a financial storm over the past few years,” says Heidi Golledge, CEO and co-founder of CareerBliss. “But right now, rates are between 2 to 3 percent and inventory is low, making it a real estate agent’s dream as new homes hit the market and (they get) multiple offers in the first week. Realtors say that the way they work, and the rewards they are seeing with a growing market, has helped boost overall happiness for those in this career.”

The presence of real estate and construction jobs in the CareerBliss happiest jobs list is a new trend this year.
