    I am completing an application and there is a question that reads, Total years of vocational experience outside of education? Can you help me to understand this questions better. I know that vocational experience is something that you have done that could help in your career. Is this meaning another job? I want to make sure that I understand this question before I answer it. My previous career was not in education, but I do think that many things from that job relates to education. Thanks for your help.

    For me, vocation is stuff like autobody, cosmo, culinary arts, etc. Students can take those vocational classes at school. It might be different in your area.

    My gut is that it's simply asking for any work experience outside of a school. But, if there is a better question addressing such jobs, then, no. It could be taken multiple ways.

    I may just call for clarification. I worked the same job for 12 years prior to entering the educational field so I have a good record of working.
