  Profession - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Historically, the number of professions was limited: members of the clergy, medical doctors, and lawyers held the monopoly on professional status and on professional education, with military officers occasionally recognised as social equals.
Professions are also generally exclusive, which means that laymen are either legally prohibited from or lack the wherewithal to practice the profession.
For example, school teachers often refer to their occupation as a profession, even though it is not exclusive (people teach others outside of the traditional school environment), nor is entrance competitive, nor are they self-regulating (laypeople in state legislatures or on boards of education typically set the rules for and regulate teachers).

 Profession (religious) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Profession, in Christian monasticism, is the act of embracing the religious state by the three vows of poverty, chastity, and obedience according to the rule of a canonically approved religious order; it involves then a triple vow made to God, and binding oneself to the rule of a certain order.
Profession for a long time was made by clothing with the religious habit: the aspirant could personally put on the habit or receive it, with or without ceremony, from the abbot or from the bishop.
In all religious orders, three years at least of simple profession are a necessary condition for the validity of solemn profession, and for lay brothers, six years of simple profession and an age of at least thirty years are required.

 Death to the Profession
Many players are disappointed to realize that the ranks they spent in Profession (doctor) don't actually give them the ability to treat an injury, identify a strange infection, or operate a sophisticated medical device.
For most players, their profession is just background color for their character, not something that has much bearing on what they can do in the game.

 Rebirth of a profession - Money - Business - smh.com.au
While its first effect was to encourage planners to leave the profession if they did not think they could make the commitment needed to meet the new standards, it's also meant that the calibre of person coming into the profession is improving.

In a formal sense, the elected officers of a professional society are the leaders of that profession.
Because a profession is fundamentally about knowledge, however, the true leaders of a profession are the thought leaders: the individuals who synthesize the thinking of the profession's members and articulate directions for the future.
