Is your job meaningful?

PayScale announced its report Most & Least Meaningful Jobs (based on how workers answer the question Does your job make the world a better place?).

The report includes data on how Job Meaning and Median Pay compare for 453 jobs from the Occupational Information Network (O*NET) (http://www.onetcenter.org), as well as the following details:

  • % High Job Satisfaction
  • % High Job Stress
  • Typical Educational Level
  • Gender Breakdown
  • Job Level
  • Job Category
  • Example Job Titles

When they looked at broader job groupings, Community and Social Service workers report the highest average job meaning with an average of 84 percent saying their work is meaningful. This grouping includes narrower job groups such as Marriage and Family Therapists, Clergy, and Directors of Religious Activities and Education, said Katie Bardaro, Lead Economist, PayScale. The three broader job categories with the lowest average job meaning are Food Preparation and Service, Legal, and Sales, which all have an average job meaning under 45 percent.
