Ramblings on jobs

First of all, congratulations to those who were insightful enough to major in engineering as college students! You engineers have done it again – for the umpteenth consecutive year, engineers are the highest paid employees when graduating from college and accepting their first full-time jobs.

According to this article and several others I located to confirm this point, chemical engineers are in the lead for the highest straight-out-of-college salaries, followed by electrical/computer engineers, while mechanical engineers hold the #3 spot. Unfortunately, their salaries have not been increasing tremendously, but their professions are still considered quite lucrative. Salaries aside, engineers are intelligent and loveable people, and I’m very happy to be married to one. 😀

Now…as for what I believe to be the *worst* job ever – it has to be Scott McClellan’s position. Who could possibly want to be the press secretary for this administration? Having to face the media day after day, justifying the actions of the president and his cabinet? Wow – no thanks. Evan and I were watching McClellan explain why the White House waited 24 hours before releasing the story about Dick Cheney’s accidental shooting of his fellow hunter over the weekend, and I thought – this poor bastard. He has to answer for every mistake made. Surely they don’t pay him enough for this.
