How do you compare jobs today to medieval jobs?

Today's jobs tend to be less physically demanding, but require more education than the medieval jobs did. Also in the Middle Ages, people were much more likely to do the same things their parents did than they are today. There are many more different kinds of jobs today than there were then, though the medieval job list is surprisingly long. Medieval people tended to work longer hours than people do today, and they were probably more willing to do risky work because they knew that life was short and hard, and that they would go to better things if they were good.

How did you get your job in the medieval ages?
