Choice of future profession: how to resolve a serious issue?
In life of each school student come the moment when there is a question of the choice of future profession. If the child since the childhood dreamed to become the doctor or the astronaut and still does not doubt correctness of the choice - it has no problems.
What who told, he with persistence of the fanatic studies textbooks in chemistry or biology or visits the circle “Young Physicist“ and well imagines that it will do upon termination of school. If this is so, then your child - the lucky. Because many children do not imagine at all whom to be both where to arrive and whether to arrive in general when the long-awaited last school call rings out.
It is good when the problem of choice of profession disturbs - it means a social and psychological maturity of your child. It is worse if to it so far all the same : mother for the handle will take away in legal institute (because it as if “is pleasant“ to it), and then it will turn out that it hates to touch tiresome pieces of paper and to communicate with people.
That is why the choice this very difficult and in it there are difficulties. The child has to understand all difficulties of the profession chosen by him, realize as it is hard to be allocated in the huge competition in modern labor market. It has to have all necessary knowledge, be interested in novelties and whenever possible lead active lifestyle.
Than parents can help the child? First of all it is necessary to try to carry away it something useful, for example, to try to write down in some circle or sports section. But it is not necessary to think that if your child goes to hockey club, then it will become obligatory the hockey player. It will give it the chance to communicate with other children, to open the talents, to know itself better. And in the future surely will help it to be defined with choice of profession.
When the child will grow up, it is possible to give him the chance to earn money most. He has to understand with what work it becomes. And parents surely have to it help with it. Of course, nobody will hire your teenager the accountant or the economist even if he dreams of it. But it is possible to arrange it with the courier or the mail carrier.
Any profession demands that the person had so-called “professionally important qualities“ - for example, to the proofreader the attention, to the artist - figurative thinking etc. is important. Therefore, choosing a certain profession, it is important to realize whether the person has corresponding abilities. In a situation of doubt it is necessary to choose that profession where these abilities will be most realized, then in this activity it will be possible to achieve the greatest success.
In the senior classes it is possible to suggest children to pass a test for career guidance which will help to decide on choice of profession. Psychologists, teachers, HR specialists take part in creation of such tests. Usually these tests give several options of professions at once. The received results can be analysed, discussed with the child, to find out to what specialty the soul lies more, and after that it is possible to begin preparation for entering a higher education institution.
And never forget that the test for career guidance will not predict future, and will only help the teenager to know better himself and the professional abilities.
It is necessary to explain that he should study diligently at school, at university. And this choice will define all his further life. Therefore it is necessary to think and present more and more time itself in this profession. And with it it has to be helped surely by his parents.
It is also possible to write down the child on courses of entrants where he will communicate to students and teachers. If there is opportunity, to reduce it on excursion in the organization where people of the interesting profession work. All this will help it to achieve the dream, to calculate the forces on ways to this dream and to achieve the.
But it is worth to remember: the final choice only for the child because choosing a profession, he chooses the destiny. The profession has to bring pleasure, cause positive emotions and provide the maximum realization of its opportunities.
