    I would use "professions" for doctors, teachers and pilots and occupation or trade for tailors.

    Occupations.
    Note about commas. We do not put a space before a comma.

    I would use "occupations" if I could only choose one. Note that, not only do we not put a space before commas, we do end every sentence with a punctuation mark. Love-you-mom - you needed a full stop at the end of each one of your sentences in all your posts (no space before a full stop either).
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
