Top coffee consuming jobs

Posted: Updated:

If you can't get by without your morning cup of joe, you aren't alone.

A new survey finds many professionals feel more productive at work when they drink coffee.  Those who say they need it the most to get through the workday are:

  1. Food Preparation/Service Workers
  2. Scientists
  3. Sales Representatives
  4. Marketing/Public Relations Professionals
  5. Nurses (Nurse, Nurse Practitioner or Physician Assistant)
  6. Editors/Writers/Media Workers
  7. Business Executives
  8. Teachers/Instructors (K-12)
  9. Engineering Technicians/Support
  10. IT Managers/Network Administrators

"There's a reason why coffee is a staple in the workplace," according to Cynthia McIntyre, Vice President of Marketing & Communications at CareerBuilder. "Workers report that coffee fuels higher energy and productivity, and serves as a means to socialize with colleagues." 

The survey reflects that thought as 43 percent claim they are less productive without their cup of joe. Workers who drink coffee typically have more than one cup.  63 percent actually drink two or more cups each day and 28 percent drink three or more.

Dunkin Donuts and CareerBuilder commissioned the survey to tie in with National Coffee Day which is Saturday.

The survey was conducted from August 13 to September 6, 2012 and included more than 4,100 workers nationwide.
