      I think most jobs are stressful, but you can often manage that by making sure you start tasks on time and by making sure everyone understands what is going on. I don’t think my job is particularly stressful; it is busy, but busy doesn’t have to be stressful.

      Yes, this job can become stressful when things do not go your way. For example, if an experiment does not give you the results you expected, it could be stressful trying to figure out what went wrong. This happened to me last summer, but I just kept persevering and figured out what went wrong with the experiment. It was something as simple as my phone interfering with the machine I was using.

      Like every job there’s deadlines and busy times and that can be stressful. But it’s important to keep a balance and just do your best 🙂
