In the book, The Giver, when a young person turns a certain age they are assigned a job that they will do the rest of their lives. However, there are a few jobs that are not assigned; they are selected types of jobs. Meaning, that the people who end up doing these jobs are chosen specifically because they would be good at it. Jonas is selected to be a receiver.
