Now in the world more and more returns are required from a person, and this applies to any field of activity and profession. Therefore, already in the last grade of basic school, you should think about how to plan your studies and what profession to choose.
First of all, it is worth thinking about what you want to get from the profession. What spheres of work do you like, what kind of life you plan to lead, how important your future salary is to you, and much more. Be sure to consider your abilities. There is no point in dreaming of a career as a philologist if you have a triple in your Russian language certificate.
Career guidance tests may be suitable to help you understand which profession is right for you. They represent a variety of statements that you will have to agree with or not. These tests have many questions in different subjects - mathematics, chemistry, physics, literature and others. In addition, they will help you assess your personality traits and interests, and sometimes even the level of intelligence.
It is also good to think about which professions are in great demand among employers now, and which ones will grow in demand in five years, when you graduate. In the first case, employment sites and newspapers will help you; in the second, forecasts of leading sociologists, whose opinion can be found on the Internet.
A common mistake when choosing a profession is prejudice and following fashion. At all times, some professions were considered more prestigious, while others were considered unworthy. For example, there is such a profession - a vacuum cleaner. But who wants to be a sewer truck? Nevertheless, society needs flushers, plumbers, nurses, lawyers, etc. So, first of all, put your interests and your abilities, and only then how prestigious this profession is. Otherwise, you will learn, for example, to be a manager, and work in your specialty will not bring you satisfaction.
