career handbook

Faerie is right. Your career is essentially that what you do to persuade others to give you money. Short of breaking the law, anything is tolerated, which is probably not a bad thing in principle.

I don't envy you your task of including the fringe practices in your guide. Is there no way of removing herbalist and ilk from the Medical section, and including it under Entertainment ;)?

Another agree. "Sales-representative" may be an occupation I'd also file under "bullshitter", but it's an occupation that a lot of people consider legitimate. (Apparently)

the careers are lumped under subject choices, so under natural sciences, medical stuff comes up a lot.
luckily, there is only room for about 10 careers in each subject field, so i cleverly made other careers sound fabulous, so that there is no room for herbalist/homeopath/acupuncturist. in my opinion, if you cant study it at a university, get a degree, and call yourself doctor what-have-you, then it's not medicine.
we have moved too far in medicine and understanding the human body, for some random oke to have the power to poke around with my health.

You'll have to find another way to "unjustify" those "careers" I'm afraid, all of them are offered as 3 - 6 year degreed courses at the big varsities in SA.... :P
