“What do you want to be when you grow up?”
We all heard this question as children. When we were little, we might’ve answered astronaut or rockstar. But as we grew older, our responses likely matured too.
Ask a teenager or young adult this question and they might answer doctor or teacher. Lawyer or engineer. Of course, there are countless career paths, but these are some of the most classic choices.
So to help visualize them, we’ve put together a set of brand new, 100% free career icons. If you’re a teacher or professor yourself, add these icons to career presentations, worksheets, quizzes and more to encourage professional growth. Grab a copy to go below!

What does this career icon pack include?
We kept it simple with this collection and covered common careers across three broad fields: healthcare, business and education.
Of course, there are many more professions out there. So if you don’t see an icon to suit your needs, leave us a comment below and we’ll add your request to the queue. Or, you can always explore more icons in the Venngage platform. (Over 40,000 to be exact!)
Okay, back to the pack…
Healthcare career icons
Encourage your students to see themselves as a healthcare professional. (We could certainly use more of them!)
Through a combination of accessories and clothing styles, these icons indicate a doctor, nurse, dentist, veterinarian, psychologist, paramedic and laboratory technician. Remember, you can find five different skin tones in the free downloadable pack and in the Venngage editor.
Add these icons to a presentation on careers in the healthcare field, an infographic on a health topic, a brochure on a health service or any other visual in need of a healthy theme.
Business career icons
Certain roles crop up in many a business. For instance, most companies will have a marketing manager, an HR manager and a team of executives — to name a few.
That’s why, our free collection covers common roles in the business realm, including an engineer, software developer, lawyer, accountant, public relations specialist, marketing manager, art director, human resources manager, sales manager and executive.
Use these icons for an informational career poster or apply them to your business communications as needed.
Education career icons
Foster future educators with icons representing a teacher, professor and librarian.
Pro-tip: make this small but mighty segment of icons go a long way by pairing them with other icons to represent specific fields of study. For example, you could add a black board with a math equation behind the teacher to indicate a mathematician.
In design speak, we call this creating icon stories. And with Venngage’s vast library of icons, there are endless stories you can tell.
