Best Answer

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.
