PROFESSIONS

You can “sometimes” find a feminine form for a profession from the masculine. In some instances it's simply possible to add an “e” to the masculine form.

REFRESHING SOME ENDINGS

This isn't a rule, just a hint that you can use sometimes. There are some other familiar endings for professions that can be easily converted to the feminine.

Remember
that professions are adjectives. For instance, the profession and the adjectives ending with -en have to be written -enne in feminine.

...Deciding on the feminine of French nouns and adjectives ending in -EUR can be a little trickier than with some other endings. If the masculine ends in -CTEUR or is a "long" word ending in -ATEUR, then change -TEUR to -TRICE in the feminine....

MEN ONLY… WHAT A SHAME!

If the profession is traditionally a masculine profession, then you must prefix the profession with “UNE FEMME”.

This
is not ideal. ..and probably decided before women were allowed to do such professions!.

This
(obviously) is not widely accepted, so what you can say instead is for some professions that were traditionally masculine you can now simply add an “e” and people will know what you are talking about. Both ways are accepted these days!

CONFUSING?

Some professions have an “e” at the end of the masculine form, so these are exactly the same for masculine and feminine.

...As a rule of thumb, "e" changes a word from masculine to feminine. So, if an adjective already has an "e" at the end, it does not have to be changed....
