I'm trying to think of a way to say a person has a job that is (more than likely) only available to the college educated. The idea is to convey a level of success.
The terms I've thought of are:
- White-collar job - Conveys office work, but seems too broad. This could apply to basic clerical work. Plus, there are some educated positions that might not be "white-collar."
- Professional position - What I'm leaning towards most. It gives the idea they're working in their field as a "professional."
An example of where it might be used is:
"My son is doing quite well for himself, he has a _________ and is living on his own already."
