    profession

    Dear Teacher,

    I am not quite sure about the meaning of the bracketed clause. Could you do me a favor?

    By mid-century, various clubs and press societies were being created as informal, shared spaces for journalists to meet (to discuss their concerns about what was rapidly becoming - in the eyes of many of them- a profession. )

    Thanks!

    It sounds like the beginnings of journalism?

    what was rapidly becoming a profession

    It means that prior to those meetings journalism wasn't a full fledged
    profession, it wasn't recognized as a profession.
