    Smile Usage of an article

    Hi,

    Why is this sentence correct and why dont we use an article here before trainer?

    I am applying for the position of trainer.


    I am applying for the position of a doctor
    I am applying for the position of doctor.

    Which one is correct?

    Thanks

    "I am applying for the position of doctor." is correct.
    The position: doctor/trainer
    Ad in newspaper: Wanted: Doctor/Trainer

    If you tell someone you are after the position of a doctor, they will ask you which doctor's position you are after, and why you think that doctor would want to give it up.
