the Son already in the eighth class, it is time to make the choice. He studies perfectly, goes to a computer circle.

Sociologists claim that nearly a half of seniors does not know about the one whom they will be. They not only do not hurry to define the future profession, but also do not consider it necessary to do it at all. As a result some choose “lifework“ hastily, at random or according to the hint, and then bitter disappointments, a dissatisfaction and feeling of the uselessness.

the Profession is chosen according to series


the list of professions known to the person develops spontaneously: professions of parents, acquaintances of a family, neighbors and about what more or less incidentally learn from books, movies, the press.

Neither results of tests, nor an assessment in the certificate, nor the point of view of teachers do not come within miles of it, nor that whose future was predicted.

the choice is influenced also by parents. The relation to work in general, statements about various professions and the in particular.
