Holy Chromoly! No wonder school PR folks are stressed! – SCN Encourager
We’re all on this list… somewhere!
That’s the spot CareerCast slotted for “PR pros” when compiling their list of the Top Ten “Most Stressful” positions.
I’m not making this up.
But this list is very, very interesting, don’tcha think?
Sure, a number of jobs are totally ignored (brain surgeon, little league baseball umpire, shark whisperer, etc.) but so what?
That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t print this out and hang it on your office door.
You should, too!
1) Enlisted military personnel
3) Airline pilot
4) Police officer
5) Event co-ordinator
6) PR executive
7) Senior corporate executive
9) Newspaper reporter
10) Taxi driver
NOW – if you interpret some of the duties involved with these roles rather loosely (like I am!) – you may also want to put a big red star by #s 5, 6, 8, 9, and 10.
AND – if you’ve ever done something like nabbing a trio of 3rd grade boys playing with matches in the bathroom or getting caught up in one of your school lockdowns – you may even want to give yourself credit for #s 2 and 4 as well.
Of course, all of this may be a stretch, but think of all that you do.
It’s a stretch that shouldn’t be all that hard to make.
Only a superintendent (coming in at spot #7) can proudly sport an additional “red star” with any integrity.
So let’s face it.
Your stress is well earned.
