Unhappy is the Financial Planner

What careers are likely to make you happy? Not financial planning, according to rankings concocted by The Wall Street Journal. On a "satisfaction" index scaled from zero to 100, the job of Certified Financial Planner ranked a near-miserable 20.2.

Other financial professionals were a bit happier, especially insurance brokers. After five years on the job, portfolio managers and actuaries hauled in the highest pay.

Overall, the job most likely to make one happy is software quality assurance manager. The least likely? Assisted living administrator. That job that did not push the satisfaction-index arrow off zero.
