Easy and hard are pretty subjective ideas. I'll just go with the educated route, not easy as in flipping burgers, but easy as in low stress.

Easiest job ? As in air conditioned office, lots of vacation time, only deal with people you feel like dealing with, be your own boss, etc

Probably a financial consultant or the like, seems like an easy task telling rich people like Donald trump how to spend money, all while getting a fraction of the profit they make. Becoming one might be hard work, but so is anything successful.

Hardest job? I always assumed being an on-call surgeon is extremely taxing on the body and mind, having to get up at 3am to do an emergency brain hemorrhage surgery. If t You make one mistake your career is over. Just being in a a hectic hospital environment most of the time until you retire sounds miserable as hell. Salary is fantastic, so is the recognition and influence and respect you get from people around you.

Hardest in terms of physical/mental strain?
Surgeon? Athlete? Executioner?

Hardest in terms of risk of injury/death?
Astronaut? Bank robber in America? Ethiopian?

Hardest in terms of making money?
Musician.

Easiest
Geordie Shore star

Toughest

Miner.


Hey it isn't that easy. I mean you have to really put in effort to be a trainwreck on TV all the time. I reckon TOWIE would be an easier gig, just be Joey Essex and then you're just too stupid for anything to matter.


Although being as miserable as Arg would be tough I guess.

Personally I think i'd hate to be a politician. As much as it can bring great wealth and power, I'd hate the notion of every single one of my actions being micro analysed by a biased media. I'm surprised more politicians don't have severe mental health issues post-office. Or maybe they do and that's why we don't heart from the majority of them!

Easiest job, I dunno man. Whatever has little to know responsibility and doesn't require a great deal of attention and is low on pressure. Something like a paper boy or bin man I guess.

Easiest, social worker
Hardest, roofer.
I've never met a social worker that can say what they actually do. I think they get paid to pretend to care about something and then drive around and check boxes on worksheets and get paid as much as a roofer.

Easiest is probably being a coach for a sucky team. Like San Marino football coach. You always lose and it doesn't matter. Hardest might be a kosmonaut for foreigners. Learnig about space in russian.

Social workers legit have one of the most taxing professions I've ever seen. I think your dumb and don't know what you're talking about.

And if this isn't a joke, yr as dumb as homeboy above

Social workers do lots of shit. What you referred to was a bad example of a shitty person working with CPS.

A social worker in CPS has got to be one of the worst possible jobs. You're doing an incredibly difficult job, interacting with people who both always hate you and who are always by nature unstable or in a bad position in some way, have the guilt of splitting up families, etc.

Most people seem to think CPS is the only place that has social workers, but it's only one small organization. Social workers provide the majority of counseling throughout the country, not psychologists. Unless you need counseling, or work/volunteer in urban or rural areas where there are a lot of marginalized/disenfranchised people, including the homeless, drug addicts, the disabled, etc., then you probably won't come into contact with many. They are also case managers at religious institutions that cater to that same demographic of people.

Regardless of the specific job, almost every single one of them is incredibly mentally and emotionally taxing. There is a significant turnover rate for social workers who work in the field because of the widespread emotional fatigue amongst social workers. A good social worker (since we're talking about idealized jobs here where people are good at them) has to be able to emotionally empathize with their client or the person they are counseling or dealing with -- it's very much part of the job. Becoming emotionally invested in so many people who have so many problems is obviously very difficult, and a good portion of a university social work program that's worth it's weight is dedicated to self-care and being able to handle yourself so that you can stand up to the difficulties of the job.

This post has made my come to the conclusion that CPS Social Worker is the worst and therefore hardest job. They don't last very long.
But we little know until tried how much of the uncontrollable there is in us, urging across glaciers and torrents, and up dangerous heights, let the judgment forbid as it may.

Quote by Rossenrot
Easiest is college professor. Hardest is coal miner.

In my opinion.
In terms of what's required to get by, I'd agree with college professor. Teaching effectively is pretty time intensive and actually takes a lot of work in terms of keeping up with pedagogical trends and methods/planning/grading. Like, one of my instructors is one of the hardest working dudes I've ever met, and all he does is teach. We're convinced that he does not sleep. On the other hand, the dude who teaches some Comp courses and Technical Writing puts in very little effort but holds a full time faculty position. I've yet to tutor a student of his who knew what they were doing, but the Comp students from the hard working guy write on an entirely different level.

A few members of my family are social workers, and I wouldn't wish that on anyone. A lot of social workers end up hiring counselors for themselves to maintain their own mental health.

I mean, that guy does it well enough where he's satisfactory on paper, but he doesn't do anything beyond that.

The hard working dude takes drafts at any point up to 24 hours before the deadline, and he turns them fucking fast. Like, in depth critiques drawing from a lot of different scholarship. I typically don't wait more than two days, sometimes only a few hours. He's sent me drafts back well past midnight on weekdays. That's on top of the publishing he has to do, the new textbooks he's involved with, the conference he started and organizes, and the actual grading/planning/teaching. Comp to grad level literary theory. And he encourages students to ask him for help even after they've graduated or to just drop by his office to ask questions. Two kids under five. Active church member. Teaches 4-5 classes per semester, so about 100 students, each writing around 20 pages each in final drafts.

It really doesn't take a lot to teach college in general, but there's such a wide range of teaching ability. Like, some teachers don't even study pedagogy that much, and that blows my mind. Then again, Oklahoma isn't really the most attractive state for teachers, so they usually end up being dedicated or just super jaded.

haha -- I taught college for a bit with zero credentials other than that I was in a grad program, but I have to go through a whole process to get certified to teach high school.*

to quote a deep truth: "damn it fry, I don't know how to teach -- I'm a professor".

of course one could do more or less work & be a better or worse teacher.
I imagine it's different by subject, too. like in English comp. just lecturing at the students is a big NO, but if you're teaching Economics 101 or History 101 or even Philosophy 101, you can pretty much just lecture at the kids for most of the class. in my experience, anyway.
you can be a better or worse lecturer.

I guess the idea is that college students are more in charge of their own learning whereas people will say you should try to make high school kids take charge of their own learning but you have to do things to make them, you cannot just go in & talk at them & say "ok, guys, this info is important, so study it lol!"

anyway -- a "type A" perfectionist can make any job a stressful hell, but I don't think that should be the measure of doing a job well.

*but of course you could always move to a garbage state like OKLAHOMA where any rando can teach, or let's just privatize education.

Vderma Don't sleep with make-up on your face. Your body and skin use the time you're asleep to rejuvenate and repair. When you sleep without removing your makeup, you are essentially suffocating the skin and not exposing it to enough oxygen. It takes only a matter of moments to fully remove any leftover makeup.
