We have great news we have to share! The Happiest Job in America in 2013 is Real Estate.
Forbes just listed the top 10 happiest (and respectively happiest) jobs in America. The #1 happiest job was a real estate agent. Careerbliss surveyed 65,000 people to come to this blissful conclusion. The logic behind this is real estate agents are rewarded for their success. They can have a flexible schedule and increase their income with hard work. The careers with less rewards and more office politics scored the lowest on the happy rating including associate attorney, customer service associate and sadly RN’s and teachers.
The Bureau of Labor Statistics expects an 11% increase in real estate jobs from 2010-2020. The majority (57%) of real estate agents are self employed.
