I have some question.

  1. Should I use 'in the profession of manual turner' or 'as a manual turner' in this text?
  2. Which sentence is better?
  1. I completed my education in the profession of manual turner at Basic Vocational School and then graduated from Technical Secondary School as a technician mechanic.
  2. I completed my education as a manual turner at Basic Vocational School and then graduated from Technical Secondary School as a technician mechanic.

The first one is better, but it is still incorrect.

It should be,

I completed my education in the profession of manual turning at a basic vocational school and then graduated from a technical secondary school as a technician mechanic.

"As" is also subtlety synonymous with "while". The word expresses a duration of time, so when you say

I graduated as a doctor

It literally means that you were a doctor while you graduated.

"As" is also used for comparison..

Her eyes are as blue as the sky.

  • Also consider using the passive voice was graduated from since the active voice is usually reserved for the school. – Gary's Student Aug 24 '14 at 0:49
  • @Gary'sStudent I don't think that's correct. – snailcar Sep 22 '14 at 18:00
