Can someone please translate this fragment from a birth record. These are the parents. I am wondering what is written below Herman's name. Is it his profession?

Thank you,
Alex Skolnick

Schneidermeister (German) = master taylor (Meister = somebody who is qualified to have his own buisness and to superwise apprentice taylors)
8/23/2009 It looks like Herman is a master tailor (Schneidermeister).
