Law, medicine and business/finance...

Usually elite jobs are lucrative with power, and often need a good education/lots of hard work to get there.

Maybe not elite, but I have respect for successful recruitment consultants.

A job where you have only a small number of people in a similar role. So basically people high up in whatever industry they work in. So not just 'doctors and lawyers lulz' because there's lots of them.

I was about to answer investment banker, lawyer etc. but realised I was just giving OTHER people's definitions of elite.

I would say anyone doing post-doctoral work (i.e. university lecturer). They work as hard as all these "high-fliers" like doctors, lawyers and bankers, but without the cash-crop salary at the end. All because of a love of knowledge. They're truly gods among men. :top:

If a job's elite, then someone with connections or the right personality are the only viable candidates. Therefore, I shall say a Politician, because of the huge amount of connections, money (for the education) and charisma needed for the job; A City Banker, because they rarely employ just anybody - a lot of the bankers are within quite a tight band of people who are all connected, whether through friendships or family relations; a Musician, because these days, you have to be very ruthless to get a deal that makes you successful. You must (it seems) have good looks, excellent connections...although not always music talent; a Journalist for a national newspaper/television, because it's SO hard to get in. You need a huge amount of work experience, connections, piles of education...it often means only the sons and daughters of middle class journalists are the only ones who can get in. Giles Coren anyone? He's pretty good, but his father was a columnist for the same newspaper; and finally, what about the secret service? Need I say much more? :p:

I don't consider there is such a thing, unless considered in specific contexts.
