Hairdressers Happier Than Techies
from the no-outsourcing-of-hairdressing? dept
A new study says that only one in seven IT workers is very happy with their job. IT work comes in 19th (out of…?) on the list of “happy professions” well behind hairdressers, plumbers, chefs and florists (a very happy bunch). I don’t think this is all that surprising. A lot of people don’t become techies because they enjoy the work, but because they think it pays well, or because it seems like a good profession. People say it over and over again – it’s important to do a job you like. However, few people actually follow through on that, and then they complain that they’re not happy in their job.
