Three-Quarters Of Americans Stressed By Something At Work

Similar to other Americans, 14% of the survey participants with a high school diploma or less ranked low pay as the top stressor, followed by annoying coworkers (12%). College graduates ranked unreasonable workload No. 1 (13%), followed by low pay (11%).

"Americans are more focused than ever on taking charge of their career and not taking their jobs for granted," Swartz said. "To reduce job stress, the most critical component is working in a career of your own choosing. If you're frustrated about your career and want to improve your situation long-term, make a plan for success.

"Whether you've been in a career for 20 years or are just starting out, stay current on new trends, learn practical skills, and consider choosing a field of study that will translate into a job in a growth industry like health care. At Everest College, we understand that career-oriented post-secondary education is vital to the economy, and we give our students the practical skills to move forward and thrive in their chosen career."

Top Careers For Stability

Industries and occupations related to health care, personal care and social assistance, and construction are projected to have the fastest job growth between 2010 and 2020, according to a February, 2012 report from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. The 20 industries with the largest projected wage and salary employment growth between 2010 and 2020 include:

  • Offices of health practitioners
  • Hospitals
  • Home health-care services
  • Nursing and residential care facilities
  • Computer system design and related services

"All government labor projections continue to show that health care is and will continue to be one of the fastest-growing industries in the U.S.," said Swartz. "The overwhelming majority of Everest's programs are in this sector and we have worked very hard to make sure our curriculum is relevant to the industries our students are interested in."
