OR provides job satisfaction

Operations research is one of the best jobs!  This is unofficial, since “operations research” wasn’t exactly one of the 200 jobs ranked by CareerCast.com.  (What else is new?)  But you’ll find operations researchers in these careers that top the list:

1. Mathematician

3. Statistician

5. Software engineer

18. Computer programmer

The Wall Street Journal has a nice article about the list if you want to read more.  If you’re curious, “Lumberjack” came in dead last.
