    Re: ???

    As a general rule, if anyone can do it, it's probably a job.
    If you have to have special qualifications, then it's likely to be a profession.
    So if you are a doctor, lawyer, accountant, teacher or similarly well qualified worker you are regarded as a professional.
    If you drive a bus, work in a shop or do anything almost anyone could do with very little training, you're doing a job.
