Mom was right: You should have become a doctor

Everyone’s mom was right: You should have become a doctor. It’s America’s most prestigious job, according to a new Harris poll.

Given a list of professions, participants were asked: “For each, how, if at all, prestigious do you find the occupation?”

Out of a possible 100 points, doctors rated an impressive 90.

The scores combine those who said the job “has prestige” and “has a great deal of prestige.”

In contrast, of the 30 occupations listed, public relations consultant came in last with a net score of 31.
