The world’s 10 happiest jobs aren’t what you’d expect

23 March 2015, 13:17Annzra Denita

It is very difficult to know beforehand if you are going to love your job.

There are a lot of factors that come into play to secure work satisfaction.

These include: your office environment, nature of work, company culture, your colleagues and (obviously) your salary.

Sadly the truth is, you’re going to be spending most of your daily life at the office – so you might as well be happy, right?

And while you never know what to expect at your new place of work, you can do some research to help stack the odds in your favour.

A good way to start is by checking out Forbes’ annual happiest job list.

This year the top 10 happiest jobs are:

1.    Principal

2.    Executive chef

3.    Loan officer

4.    Automation engineer 

5.    Research assistant

6.    Oracle data base operator

7.    Website developer

8.    Business development executive

9.    Senior software engineer

10.    Systems developer

If some of these are puzzling (who would have thought being a principal is one of the happiest jobs?), CareerBliss (who complies the list) evaluates jobs by looking at some key factors that affect an employee’s happiness.

These factors include: employers and colleagues in the workplace, support, rewards and growth opportunities in the workplace and company culture.

So if you are thinking about a career change, it seems anything to do with developing is the best way to go!
