One of the first things we need to learn in Spanish is how to talk about us: who we are, where we live or where we work. In this post we will learn spanish vocabulary about jobs and professions.

To ask for somebody’s occupation or profession in an informal way, we usually ask one of the following questions:

  • ¿A qué te dedicas ?
  • ¿En qué trabajas? 

To this questions, we would reply by talking about our profession (profesión), and to do so, we use verb ser:

  • Soy abogada (I am a lawyer)
  • Soy profesor (I am a teacher)
  • Soy veterinaria (I am a vet)
  • Soy camarero (I am a waiter)

We could also add the place where we are working now:

  • Trabajo en una escuela (I work in a school)
  • Trabajo en un hospital (I work at a hospital)
