I can only work on one job at a time. However, I was wondering if I would be lucky if i knew just what the other jobs might be like. I work in sales. High pressure, High- activity and well-paid job. I sometimes have to take the brunt from my bosses and clients the same time. Clients can be uncertain and unreasonable and so are bosses. Nevertheless, it's well-paid, it gives immense satisfaction, demands professionalism, demands proper grooming and requires me to be up-to-date on current affairs and product knowledge. What about yours?

Hi vapourlock,I am in sales too. I was previously a secretary - this job is good if you have an understanding boss or else it will be a nightmare serving one that is very grumpy and has a quick temper. I do agree with you that sales job does give satisfaction. We feel a sense of achievement when we close the deal with our clients, right?

I agree with that too. I had a horrible boss earlier and man, I had to run like hell from there. My present boss is a sweetheart - it means a lot to us sales guys uh? oh yes, nothing like closing a deal, man!

I don't think you can say that one job is particularly harder than others. Each job has their own difficulties. My job is not physically demanding. However, it can be mentally exhausting.

Yeah, I concur. Some jobs can mentally wear you out.

While it's not my job, I have a great deal of respect and admiration for teachers. I believe teaching children must be one of the most difficult jobs, but I also think it could be very rewarding. I don't think teachers get the respect they deserve, because they do work very hard to educate children. It must be stressful to think that you can have such influence on someone's future.

Rewarding, it certainly is. As they say, one of the most noble professions indeed. Nothing like a student coming back to you and attributing all his/her success to their respective teachers? It's like closing a super deal for me! :-)

I think the most difficult job is the job you are doing just for the money and not for your passion for the job. Or any job you do not like and yet you are doing it.
