I believe that in the context of a job interview, your profession would be what you studied and are qualified for, and your occupation would be what it is that you are currently working as. So that if you studied law and are a practicing lawyer, your professoin and occupation would be the same thing, but if you studied law and you are currently working as, say, a bank teller, then your profession would be lawyer, but your occupation would be bank teller...

What is the difference between the profession and employment?

My understanding is that employment is the immediate job that you may hold. I.e. are you employed or not? Whereas your profession is what you do for a living. For example, a doctor can have employment through a particular hospital, however, he is a member of the medical profession. Professional means a person who is expert at his or her work. Employment is an occupation by which a person earns a living.
