Is Practicing Law a 'Sexy' Job?
According to Carl Jones writing for the Daily Business Review on July 25, 2005, a recent survey of 5,000 people by Salary.com found that lawyers ranked second to last on a list of the top "sexiest" jobs. The top three "hot jobs" were firefighter, flight attendant and chief executive officer. Lawyers ranked just below doctors (#9) and just above veterinarians(#10). News reporters ranked third, in a three-way tie with interior designers and event planners. "That seems preposterous enough to invalidate the whole survey," writes Jones, who obviously never practiced law.
