I constantly do this – and I pursue lots of hobbies and day jobs (well, okay, the latter involuntarily) in part to get a better look at different occupations. I’m very disappointed when a person writes a character with a certain occupation, and gives no insight as to that job. Jobs are extremely important parts of our lives, and can truly enrich a piece of writing.
