1. Ignorance of the world trades - existing and relevant perspective

Existing profession sometimes assessed on the basis of the knowledge that Aunt Clara's son works in a bank, and at Marpetrovny engineer at the plant. At the same time, no matter what the son of Aunt Clara is not the owner of the bank, but just an accountant. About accountants always think they are literally sitting on bags of money and turn their millions to their advantage. A psychologist is perceived as a walking X-ray of the human soul. Hence it is very common joke about "you're a doctor," "you're a translator," "you're a manager," etc. Thus, it turns out that most people do not know the specifics of certain professions and has only a superficial understanding of their content. As for prospective professions, while all aspired to become an epidemic of economists and lawyers, gone forever. These professions today is more than enough. The labor market in Russia today needs specialists in the following areas:

• also include technical professions high demand for engineers, industrial engineers.

2. Ignorance of the rules of occupational choices

Misconception about the nature of an activity that leads to the selection does not match the humans inclinations, abilities and character features. Profession may be selected on the basis of representations of it as romantic (geologist, actor), intelligent (doctor, engineer, scientist), fashion (designer, lawyer, manager), money (broker, a sailor, a plastic surgeon), or on the grounds that several generations of the family are employed in it.

Terms of career choices

• It should identify in which areas there is a need today, to talk with successful members of the profession who are engaged in it for years. This will see the prospect of the next 2-3 year.
• Find out which institutions provide training in these specialties. Better to choose public schools with a name to collect the maximum number of comments about them, read tutorials and see faculty.
• Find an opportunity to try his hand almost in this environment at least for trainee positions, or as a freelancer.
• Assess the real employment opportunities, view recent research on job search sites or jobs in large organizations, as well as the demand for the profession in different regions of Russia and abroad.
• Do not succumb to the indirect or direct influence of friends, because they come from their ideas about what you need, and it can greatly diverge from yours. Furthermore, even close people tend to project their negative experience. If Uncle Vasya 90-e went to trade after working as an engineer, it is unlikely that it will adhere to the opinion that the engineer - a wonderful profession. It is important to remember that the attitude to the profession of any person made up of many factors.

3. Ignorance itself - in terms of health, their abilities, personal qualities and flavors goals

Often lawyers seek those who can not stand hard work, a psychologist studying is emotionally deaf people and on geological expeditions dream personality with deep chronic diseases. Therefore, before choosing the future scope of activities, listen to yourself and evaluate your options.

Thing to remember is that the work is attractive only when it encounters an internal response, and therefore meets our inclinations. Often activities can like your results, associated benefits, recognition in society, social status and other benefits that it provides. But the real tendency always mean disposition and to the process of activity, when the work is not just a means to kakih-nibud goals, but itself becomes attractive and serves as a source of inspiration.
