Rejoice: Real estate agent rated happiest job in America

Real estate agents have the happiest job in America, according to a new survey from CareerBliss. They — that is, you — beat out some sexy, sexy other careers such as “senior QA engineer,” “senior sales representative,” and “construction superintendent.”

The survey looked at more than 65,000 career reviews in which workers rated “several factors that contribute to job happiness, such as company culture, compensation and the work they do,” says the site.

And CareerBliss co-founder and CEO Heidi Golledge explains why:

“Right now, it is a seller’s market so the real estate agent’s cost of advertising and marketing is very low and commissions are high. Happy times.”

The least happy job? Associate attorney, with “customer service associate” and “clerk” ranked near the bottom.
