Recruiters Are the Most Satisfied Workers in the U.S.

Although recruiters may be shouldering a greater workload than ever trying to find talented candidates in a tight labor market, they’re very satisfied with their jobs nonetheless. That’s according to Glassdoor’s latest Jobs with the Highest Satisfaction in the U.S. report.

Recruiting Manager is ranked No. 1 on the list, with a job satisfaction score of 4.6 and a median base salary of $70,000. That’s followed by Dental Hygienist at No. 2, with a job satisfaction score of 4.5 and a median base salary of $67,250.

Job satisfaction doesn’t necessarily correlate with a high salary, the research finds. Only two jobs in the top 10 listed base median salaries with six figures, while No. 5 on the list, marketing assistant, has a median base salary of $34,000.

On the whole, however, most of the positions on Glassdoor’s list pay decently.

“We’ve found that job satisfaction doesn’t have to come at a financial cost—the majority of these positions pay well above the U.S. median base pay,” says Glassdoor Economic Research Analyst Amanda Stansell.

Glassdoor compiled the list based on data from U.S.-based employees. For a job title to be considered for this year’s list, it must have received at least 100 salary reports and at least 100 satisfaction ratings. The report does not include C-suite and intern-level jobs.
