    Sexiest professions

    WHAT IS THE SEXIEST PROFESSION

    Making a lot of money doesn't necessarily make you sexy.

    In last year's poll conducted by Salary.com, firefighter hosed down the competition and won the title of "sexiest job" of 2006 with 16 percent of the nearly 5,000 votes. These brave, uniformed public servants won out over other high-paying jobs like doctor, lawyer, and chief executive officer.


    Heart Trumps Riches

    Take it from the wife of a firefighter: "How could you not find it sexy when a person is willing to risk his life for another's; literally walk through fire? You can't put a price tag on that. It is not just a job to them, but a way of life. It is who they are." (rolls eyes)

    Flight attendant also flew high, finishing second in the poll with 13 percent of the vote. (A complete list of the 2006 sexiest jobs and their salaries is available at Salary.com).

    CEO Holds Strong

    Money and power still matter, however, as chief executive officer (CEO) climbed the corporate ladder to third in the poll, capturing 11 percent of the vote. Perhaps this is due to the fact that the average CEO across all U.S. metros earns a cool $610,000 per year.

    Other high-paying jobs like doctor and lawyer did not fare quite as well, finishing ninth and tenth respectively. The doctor may be feeling sick after only receiving 7 percent of the vote, while the job title of lawyer obviously lost its sex appeal with 4 percent.

    Popular TV Character Jobs Also Sexy

    Other hot jobs in the poll included reporter and interior designer, each receiving 10 percent of the vote. The recent "sexiness" of these jobs may be fueled by the popularity of TV's Debra Messing, who played interior designer Grace Adler on "Will and Grace"; Sarah Jessica Parker, who was newspaper columnist Carrie Bradshaw on "Sex and the City"; and casts of such home-improvement shows as "Trading Spaces" and "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition." These people may look good on screen, but like the firefighter, they aren't making too much dough.

    Is It the Milkman?

    We also found out -- based on a large number of write-in votes -- that you don't necessarily have to be a firefighter to be considered hot.

    Some of the most popular write-in votes included dental hygienist, pilot, marine, police officer, physical therapist, chef, and high-level executive jobs for women. And if your job wasn't listed, don't give up yet! There are people out there who also mentioned these jobs as sexy: parcel deliverers, CPAs, electrical line workers, radiological technologists, and of course, the proverbial "milkman."


    Who will be the sexiest profession in 2007? Hopefully not firefighters...I'd say law enforcement is a good choice!

    My daughter used to work at Victorias Secrets! Myself, I find female taxi-cab drivers and Waste management employees irresistable!
    For the morning will come. Brightly will it shine on the brave and true, kindly upon all who suffer for the cause, glorious upon the tombs of heroes. Thus will shine the dawn.

    A Smile

    A smile cost nothing, but gives so much.

    It enriches those who receive it,
    without making poorer those who give.
    It takes but a moment, but the memory
    of it sometimes lasts forever.

    None is so rich or mighty that he
    can get along without it,
    and none is so poor but that
    he can be made rich by it.

    A smile creates happiness in the home,
    fosters goodwill in business,
    and is the countersign of friendship.

    It brings rest to the weary,
    cheer to the discouraged, sunshine to the sad,
    and it is nature's best antidote for trouble.

    Yet it cannot be bought, begged, borrowed,
    or stolen, for it is something that is of no
    value to anyone until it is given away.

    Some people are too tired to give you a smile.
    Give them one of yours, as none needs a smile
    so much as he who has no more to give.
