Differ from professions in that their members are overwhelmingly employed by bureaucracy (though increasing numbers of professionals are employed in such organizations as well), it is not often a terminal profession, and they lack specialized knowledge (such as law or medicine). Semi-professions lack the power, latitude on the job, and prestige of full professions, they also lack the compensation. Examples would include teachers, social workers, nurses and other occupations dominated by females—and many would say it is this latter characteristic that determines their status as semi-professions.
