Payscale.com recently wrote one of those click-bait list-cum-articles on five high-paying, low-stress jobs.
The numbers are off, because they use payscale’s unscientific data, rather than the much larger, broader survey done by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, but I was interested to see that aerospace engineers (called aeronautical engineers in payscale’s piece) were ranked No. 4.
The writer said: “Who wouldn’t feel inspired working on the wonder of flight every day? From lowering aircraft weight and fuel needs to improving safety, aeronautical engineers spend a lot of time rethinking and improving how we travel through the air.”
(Fyi, Aerospace engineers’ median salary last year was $103,720).
So you aerospace engineers out there, do you agree, is your job low-stress? Share your thoughts in the comments.
