    Journalism is not a profession, nor does it require “extensive training.” A four year arts degree hasn’t counted as “extensive training for 30 years. Many technician jobs do, in fact, require extensive training (e.g. nuclear medicine tech, aircraft maintenance tech, machinist, etc.).

    To further discredit this retarded definition, there are literally millions of self-employed people, such as plumbers, electricians, computer techs, farmers, grocers, etc., who are not “supervised by another person.”

    A much more accurate way to describe a profession is a line of work that REQUIRES a license, certification, or other peer-regulated endorsement to practice. In other words, every profession listed in this article as an example EXCEPT journalist.

    A profession requires extensive training, and deep, specialized knowledge, whereas an occupation does not. A profession can be called an occupation when a person is paid for his or her skill and deep knowledge. People engaged in occupations aren’t paid for their knowledge, only for what they produce. Professionals undergo years of higher education, while those engaged in occupations do not. Professionals are autonomous, whereas those engaged in occupations are supervised by another person. Professions demands that responsiblity lie with the individual, not the organization or company. Professions are regulated by professional codes of behavior and statutes.
    Profession: A number of individuals in the same occupation voluntarily organized to earn a living by openly serving a certain moral ideal in a morally permissable way.

    I would not say that there are only minor differences between a profession and an occupation, given the vast amount of time it takes to qualify for and acquire licensure in order to practice a profession.

    Those people in an occupation are exceedingly important, as they tend to perform tasks that produce goods and services that most people use with fair regularity; however, the specialized knowledge of a professional is not easily replicated an is certainly not easy to come by.
