Although many people say "the oldest profession is prostitution", reality is more likely that the first jobs were hunting, gathering, farming, and cooking. Men traditionally were the hunters and farmers; women were traditionally the gatherers and cooks. Gathering would include things like roots, berries, and other edibles identified in a region or area.

answer 2 The answer lies deep in Anthropology. Profession probably infers that the practice has benefit to others beyond ones own family group/self. The group leader may fulfill this role, as would communal healer, or communal interpreter of natural phenomena.
