The qualifier goes in subfield $c but it is "other designation associated with the person" not occupation (field of activity is not an element that can be added to access points anymore). The relevant RDA instruction is  In both the 100 field and the 368 field, the designation is put in subfield $c.

I believe the PCC stricture against adding such designators to 100 fields unless breaking a conflict is still in effect, correct?  Or is this only for existing authority records?

I know the JSC has straightened this out for next spring's RDA update.
