The main task of this article is critical analysis of usefulness of the concept of professions. The main argument presented in article is that the most widespread theoretical perspectives on professions - based on structural functionalism or neo-Weberian approaches - are not helpful in analysis of contemporary world of work. We argue that actual transformation of organization of work is the main reason why the concept of professions as a special and unique occupational group should be abandoned and replaced by the concept of professionalism, understood as a specific discursive mechanism of control.
