In European countries there is a curious phenomenon, where students after high school do not go straight to College, and are searching for a vocation through travel, work, creativity. In my memory, people change the profession 50, and of 70 years, our adult world and adults find themselves in a profession is not only associated with education, especially school. But imagine a world with major error after school — it would be awful.


2. Looking for information about jobs – we are adults with a certain amount of knowledge, experience, professional activities, I'm talking about teachers and parents who have enough objective information about various occupations, the situation on the labour market. Even if it is not so, you can always talk, search, pick up the necessary literature, to find information on the Internet about the teenager interested in the profession. Possibly you can organize a meeting with representatives of those professions which are interesting, to pass a vocational examination and consult with the experts-the professional counselors.

Sometimes this is enabled by various mugs and sections. For example, if a student feels a potential journalist, then verify your solution is working in the editorial of the school newspaper. Quite often you can find a way for the device to work in the field of interest to him during the holidays, let it be the most unskilled work. But being "on the scene", you can plunge into the atmosphere of interest to professional activities, to fill mistakes. To find the right professional probe, to help the teenager to choose a profession through the implementation of this option often only for an adult.


4. Talking, always talking - a lot of useful information regarding the choice of future profession can give serious, premeditated conversation. In conversation it is important to define the criteria of choice of profession taking into account the knowledge and experience of each participant of the conversation. Worth talking about, whether it is clear that professional activity, which is interesting as it is promising.

This is sometimes to say, honesty will prevent mass claims.

Study the job description of the desired professions — they are descriptions of symptoms that characterize a particular profession, and include the list of norms and requirements of the profession or specialty to the employee. Job analysis may include, for example, the list of the hygienic or psychological characteristics, which should meet the representatives of specific professional groups. It is necessary to search for a suitable profession on the personal qualities of man, giving him the opportunity to do so, that he likes.

  • what is known about the mode and nature of training activities and requirements for students
  • how realistic is it to achieve the goals I set with this institution,
  • what to do if "fail" is the best option
  • what happens if the "fall through" in both the first and the alternate options.

Also important is the familiarity with the structure of educational institutions, level in education, entrance exams. In this can help information guides for applicants, meetings with representatives of educational institutions to vocational mini-fairs in school, open days at the school.
