25 of The Best Jobs You Can Work For a Happy Life

On Tuesday, job recruiting website Glassdoor released their 2015 list of 25 Best Jobs for Work-Life Balance.

The jobs were rated on a 1 to 5 scale — 1 being very dissatisfied and 5 being very satisfied — based on employee reviews Glassdoor collected over the past year.

Glassdoor looked for employers that provided reasonable work schedules and comfortable salaries.

Over half of the jobs on the list are engineering- or technology-based, most likely due to the fact that most engineering and tech companies offer the opportunity for their employees to work from where they want.

According to the data that Glassdoor received over the past six years, the average work-life balance satisfaction rating has steadily decreased. In 2009 the average satisfaction rating was 3.5. In 2012 it was 3.4, and today the average rating is 3.2.

For jobs to have been considered they had to have a work-life balance rating of at least 75% and there must have been a minimum of 200 available positions in that job on Glassdoor.
