CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

CareerCast released a list of the ten most stressful jobs of 2014, as well as the least stressful. Does your job appear on either list? Is it time to make a career change?

The job-search portal and online resource center studies 200 career paths with regard to how much stress they incur every year.

Their analysis considers 11 factors: Amount of travel, growth potential, deadlines, working in the public eye, competitiveness within the workplace, physical demands, environmental conditions, how often your life is at risk, how often other lives are at risk, hazards and contact with the public.
