Is "seorang" necessary here

Without "seorang", your sentence would be still grammatically correct but socially incorrect. I asked native speakers about the difference of nuance. Please read this Q/A:

You can omit "seorang" in a conversation with your friends, but I don't recommend to do so toward unfamiliar people when you are talking about someone's profession. It's rude.
