Saying hello to a full-time job often means saying goodbye to all the extra time you once had—the luxury of staring at a blank wall and exclaiming your boredom.
You may think a standard 9 to 5 job can’t be as demanding as we say. Some professions, however, have it a lot worse than others. Advertising agencies, for instance, have longer work hours, while a morning shift at a café may be shorter—but equally (if not more) demanding.
At the end of the day, each line of work is unique in terms of managing time, relying on a different skill-set to meet timely objectives and produce results.
Managing Time (and Stress)
The success of every business depends on its employees’ ability to handle stress.
Some industries are known for their swift service, raising the standard by hiring people who excel at time management. Here are the top 5 professions that make the cut:
1. Medical and Healthcare
Emergency units, surgeries, physician assistants, radiologists—everything and everyone in a hospital or medical care unit depends on quick service. This means hiring qualified professionals who aren’t just skilled in the trade, but also experienced in working under pressure and remaining composed in intense situations.
2. Information Technology
Anything that involves technology and data collection, inevitably translates into automation and observation. Logistics managers are responsible for a range of duties, including but not limited to coordinating, managing, planning, and initiating all kinds of complex IT projects.
Ever heard of a lawyer who had nothing but time? No? It’s probably because they don’t have any to spare between preparing for court and dealing with clients.
4. Advertising agencies
Notorious for their long hours and demanding clients, advertising agencies must master a careful balancing act between coordinating with vendors and working with designers to deliver quality projects.
When CEOs cancel meetings, they’re not trying to show that they can. They’re doing it because their presence is requested by a number of individuals, at multiple venues at the same time. Stress level: easily an 11 on 10.
