Default Lead in ideas?

Dear all,
I am in the middle of planning a vocabulary and pronunciation on the subject of Jobs. I’m little stuck for lead in.
So far my only idea is letting my students watch a short video clip and then tell me the jobs they see from the video. However, after that, I don’t know how to ask them any other questions or how to lead in the lesson.
Can anyone help me?
Thank you!

You could consider "jobs charades" where students mime out various jobs and their team guesses. Simple, easy and fun.

I agree with David. We play charades in our classes as well and it works fantastically.

This is way too late for you, but someone else might read it...
I write the alphabet on the board - vertically - and ask the students to give me a job for each letter. I and U can be tricky: I usually end up suggesting icecream maker/seller and umbrella-maker, although just now as I typed this I remembered undertaker! And I usually end up teaching them Optometrist for O. But it's surprising how involved the whole class gets in such a simple activity.
