One of the most important life decisions we make is the choice of a career. As Judaism is most concerned with so many of the minor decisions we make - how to farm, what to eat, what to wear - surely it has much to say about what will occupy many, perhaps most, of our waking hours. So it may appear somewhat surprising that we find next to nothing, neither in the Torah nor in the vast corpus of the Talmud about career choices.
"Do not judge a person until you are in his place." (Avot 2:5) We unfortunately live in a very judgmental (Jewish) world where people are judged and looked down upon for all kinds of reasons - generally without even bothering to check if the "facts" are true. In a society where the thirty second sound bite - or shall we say 140 character tweet - is king is it any surprise there is little time or interest to develop nuance allowing views, often mistaken ones at that, to be formed much too quickly.
