PROFESSION

Any occupation that requires specialized knowledge based on guidelines and rules of conduct previously established to govern such items as minimal qualifications, training performance levels fees and business practices. Often rules also govern relations between members of the profession and their clients and co-workers.

PROFESSION: "My profession is governed by my state board and industry boards of conduct."
