E.g. Burgh is an artist, Roxanne is a teacher, Norman is a negligent parent, etc.

Also, are there any discrepancies between anime/ game/ manga references to their jobs?

There are quiet a few (around Johto and Kalos) that I didn't quite get, post if you think I missed something.

As a matter of discrepancies, there are a few like Brock's role as a Breeder in the anime, which was not mentioned in the game, and Winona's job as supervisor in the manga.

Hope I helped!

Yeah. [filler]
Wasn't Wallace Juan's mentor? Or am I getting mixed up?
This is correct ^
You are awfully confused xD
Juan is the mentor, Wallace is the pupil. I can vouch for that.
Dang, you're right.
