  1. an inclination to undertake a certain kind of work, especially a religious career; often in response to a perceived summons; a calling.
  2. an occupation for which a person is suited, trained or qualified.

A vocation is an occupation for which a person is suited, trained or qualified. It is also the inclination to undertake a certain kind of work, especially a religious career; often in response to a perceived summons; a calling. This type of vocation is either professional or voluntary, that is carried out more for its altruistic benefit than for income, which might be regarded as a secondary aspect of the vocation, however beneficial.
