Think there's no such thing as a high-paying, low-stress job?
It turns out there are plenty of low-stress professions in which you can pull in a pretty penny.
We reached out to Laurence Shatkin, Ph.D., a career-information expert, to find out which ones fit the bill.
Shatkin compared average salaries and stress levels of the 767 occupations identified by the U.S. Department of Labor to identify jobs with that perfect combination of high pay and low stress.
The stress tolerance for each job is a rating on a scale from zero to 100, where a lower rating signals less stress. It measures how frequently workers must accept criticism and deal effectively with high stress on the job. The data was gathered from the Bureau of Labor Statistics and Occupational Information Network (O*NET).
