If you work as a librarian, hair stylist or audiologist, you have some of the most stress-free work around, according to a new survey, but if you’re a soldier, a PR executive or a pilot, you’re not quite as lucky.

A new survey from CareerCast.com ranks enlisted military officers, military generals and firefighters as having the most stressful jobs out there.

The site focuses on the U.S. labour market, so it’s hard to say whether Canadian military personnel face the same levels of stress. But a similar survey from job site Adzuna last year, looking at Canada, found oil riggers to have the most stressful jobs in the country. Military personnel didn’t rank in the top 10.

At the other end of stress spectrum, librarians appear to have it pretty good, ranking in both the CareerCast and the Adzuna surveys as being among the most stress-free jobs. Hair stylists also made both lists.

The CareerCast survey looked at 11 factors to determine which jobs are most stressful, including competitiveness, deadlines, working in the public eye, putting your own life at risk and environmental conditions, among other things.

Check out the full CareerCast and Adzuna rankings:
