Survey: Newspaper Reporter Worst Job
Posted: 4/23/2013 | By: Kyle Kensing | CareerCast
Working as a newspaper reporter was a dream job for Rochelle Gilken,
but that changed as the years passed and the industry shifted gears.
"The pay left a lot to be desired, and the stress - oh boy! I have two
kids, and I have to say that I couldn't balance home and work and be
happy due to the stress," says Gilken, who spent six years as a crime
reporter for the Palm Beach Post.
Of course, low pay and
high stress are part of a reporter's job description, but other changes
led to Gilken's decision to change industries.
