HISTORIAN listed as one of the best jobs in America for 2010

The Wall Street Journal has just published a list of the “Best and Worst Jobs” for 2010 in terms of environment, income, employment outlook, physical demands, and stress. (HT)

And here’s the good news:

“HISTORIAN” IS RANKED #5 ON THE LIST!!!!!

That’s right folks, we are ranked higher than the following professions:

Accountant
Pharmacist
Occupational Therapist
Stockbroker
Attorney
Veterinarian
Dentist
Nurse
Electrical Engineer
Optometrist
Insurance Agent
And many, many more…

The downside, of course, is that it is becoming increasingly more difficult in this economic climate to become a historian.
