Legal jobs in San Antonio overblown?

Tuesday, February 19th, 2013

There are many jobs that are considered overrated, and legal jobs in San Antonio may be lumped into that group.

Jobs are considered overrated when the public has a very different perception than the reality of the job.

According to a recent poll from CareerCast, many people said that legal jobs in San Antonio and other parts of the United States were among the most overrated jobs.

Also placing on the most overrated jobs list were senior corporate executive, commercial airline pilot, stockbroker, surgeon and attorney.

Advertising execs see job turnover resulting from the pressure of high expectations and the stress of competition for accounts with lower budgets.

Computer systems analyst, civil engineer, veterinarian, biologist and market research analyst all rank among CareerCast.com’s most underrated jobs.

“The most underrated jobs offer increasing opportunities and rewarding potential for job seekers new to the labor force, or those who need a change,” says Lee. “Some positions, such as veterinarian and school principal, require specialized advanced degrees, but you can become a plumber, electrician or automobile mechanic with additional training after high school.”

“Poor outlook for future growth, long hours, stress and a multitude of new candidates entering the industry make it especially challenging to break into many of our overrated careers,” says Tony Lee , publisher, CareerCast.com. “Overrated jobs seem attractive from the outside, but often sound better than they really are.”
