Whether you nod your head in silent understanding or shake your head in anger, there should probably be no surprise which tech jobs were ranked at the bottom of CareerCam's list of the best and worst jobs of 2012.
While the position of Software Engineer was ranked as their overall number one pick of 200 jobs, due to salary, hiring outlook and working conditions, not all of the high tech positions CareerCam listed came in the top half. In fact, two positions were just barely escaped being listed in the bottom quarter.
Both involve long hours, some heavy lifting, mixed appreciation and of course a screwdriver.
The worst tech job, coming in at #148 out of 200 is the Electrical Equipment Repairer.
The second worst tech job, ranked #142 is the Computer Service Technician.
Of course, like all surveys these rankings are generalizations and don't take into account individual workplaces, pay rates, customer appreciation or job satisfaction.
