Prejudices regarding a certain profession can be, for example:
- Beliefs about the kind of people: e.g. Only stupid and lazy people or people who feel better than others work here.
- Beliefs about the type of work: e.g. Far too heavy physical work or work where you only have meetings all day
- Beliefs about the reward versus effort: e.g. A huge reward for doing almost nothing or getting paid far too little for working too hard
- Beliefs about status and prestige: From that specific job you will be looked at with prestige or counter-wise
