It’s a weighty question to be sure, but it’s one career-finding platform Sokanu set out to answer with a survey of workers across the country.

The survey looked at happiness by location and by job. Oddly enough, it seems like the further west you go, the happier workers get – with the exception of Oregon, which sits in the bottom five states in terms of satisfied workers. “What’s going on with the East Coast?” one wonders.

The survey also found that creative gigs like video game producer and comedian make for the happiest employees, whereas more rote roles like stock clerk and cashier make for less-satisfied workers.
