So, I was a bit snarky in yesterday's post about the Careercast.com study that found being a university professor the least stressful job in 2012.
Why snarky? If you ask many of my fellow academicians, particularly those untenured assistant professors at Division I Research Universities, they'd scoff at the results.
Think I'm kidding?
Susan Adams highlighted the results of the study in Forbes. While the article is a pretty basic summary, the real reason to check it out is the outrage in the comments section from those very individuals.
Philip Nel, a Professor of English at Kansas State University, attempted to break down how much work he does in a typical week during the school year, as well as what a professor does during the summer (when he or she is unpaid).
It's enlightening and (anecdotally) accurate.
