In a recent global survey of 16,000 adults, LinkedIn found that one out of every three parents have a hard time understanding what their child does for a living. Two thirds of parents want to learn more, and half think that they could support their child better if they did. 
"Given all of the new types of jobs created over the past few years, it’s understandable that a lot of parents may not understand what their kids actually do at work each day,” said Pat Wadors, vice president of talent at LinkedIn.
The survey found the 10 jobs that are most misunderstood around the world. We've broken them out, along with an explanation for any struggling parents.
