This is based on the What is a Word/Phrase™ series of Phrase™ and Word™ puzzles, started by JLee.

If a profession meets certain criteria, I call it a Stackable Profession™. Here are some examples:

Stackable Profession™ Non-Stackable Profession™
Gardening Farming
Photography Interior Design
Academia Marketing
Carpentry/Woodworking Architecture
Writing Publishing (Books)
Cooking Taste-Testing
Software Engineering Waitering
Electrical Engineering Patent Inspection


Stackable Profession™,Non-Stackable Profession™
Photography,Interior Design
Writing,Publishing (Books)
Software Engineering,Waitering
Electrical Engineering,Patent Inspection

Can you figure out which professions are Stackable Professions™?

Note: each profession stands on its own - that is, you can determine whether or not it is a Stackable Profession™ just from itself.

I apologize if this is too easy or too hard - this is my first post here, though I've been hanging around for a while.
