“Un” for personal descriptor

Regardless of gender, would you always use un when talking of self?  For instance, Soy un cocinera mala.

Hola Kaity

You need "un/una" when you use a sentence like you did:

Soy una cocinera mala.

But if you are just saying your profession, what you do for a living, you need to drop it:

Soy cocinera; Soy profesora; Soy ingeniera...
