Happy Monday: Top 10 coffee drinking occupations


I’m taking a break from my usual posts about workplace dysfunction to report news of more significant gravity: Dunkin’ Donuts and CareerBuilder have teamed up on a national survey to identify the occupations with the heaviest coffee drinkers.

Chris Reidy of the Boston Globe (after all, Dunkin’ is a local brand) provides the list, in rank order (link here):

1) Food Preparation/Service Workers

2) Scientists

3) Sales Representatives

4) Marketing/Public Relations Professionals

5) Nurses (Nurse, Nurse Practitioner or Physician Assistant)

6) Editors/Writers/Media Workers

7) Business Executives

8) Teachers/ Instructors (K-12)

9) Engineering Technicians/Support

10) IT Managers/Network Administrators

For all of you whose occupations didn’t make the list, get over it and have another cup or two. I’m a little miffed that neither of my main venues, higher education and law, are on it, but at least this gives me a goal to work toward.
