NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Jobs that require you to face unpredictable conditions, immediate dangers and high-stakes situations, rank among the most stressful of 2014, according to CareerCast.com, which compiled a list of the 10 most stressful jobs of 2014.
Whether you're a police officer, a pilot or a reporter, certain jobs can really stress you out. Here are the 10 careers that are said to be the most stressful...
1. Enlisted Military Personnel
In the military, danger is a fact of life.
The most dangerous military jobs are special ops, combat medics, infantry, supply truck drivers, and rescue swimmers, according to US Military.com.
2. Military General
A general is at risk of personal harm, but also is responsible for putting many others in danger, which could stress anyone out.
General Carter Ham, who once commanded all U.S. soldiers in Europe, spoke candidly with USA Today about the stress that comes with being a general who survived combat.
"It's not abnormal to have difficulty sleeping. It's not abnormal to be jumpy at loud sounds. It's not abnormal to find yourself with mood swings at seemingly trivial matters," Ham said.
Firefighters literally put themselves in the line of fire.
As an emergency professional, your work is inherently pressure-packed, the Houston Chronicle said, adding that not only do they have to deal with the stress of putting out fires or helping in emergencies, firefighters in busier communities witness property destruction, death and injury.
