успешным во взрослой жизни. If You Do Not Think about the Future, You Will Not Have It “Decision is a rough paper of the future.” “The seeds for the future should be sowed at present. They are called the plan. Nothing positive can be developed without it.” Centuries ago there were only few jobs: people were farmers, bakers, butchers or carpenters. Today there are thousands of different kinds of jobs, and new ones are constantly appearing. They are a doctor, dentist, surgeon, pharmacist, nurse, vet, chemist, teacher, musician, singer, dancer, actor or actress, architect, designer, model and stuff like that. So it is very difficult to choose a future profession. When choosing a future career we should consider different factors such as our interests,

our talent, our personal qualities, our parents’ ambitions, our bent for this profession and of course, money, one of the main factors which will play a very important role in our future life. There are highlypaid jobs and low-paid jobs. For example, a businessman, a president or a film star are highlypaid jobs. A worker, a doctor or an engineer are low-paid jobs. It is clear that everybody wants to earn as much as possible. Further training, promotion prospects and job conditions should be also taken into account. On the other hand, it is good when you get a satisfaction from your job. It is very important to choose a profession that suits your interests and character. A job should be interesting and socially important. Some jobs are considered to be more suitable for men and

others for women. For example, the professions of secretary or a nurse are more suitable for women. A lifeguard or a pilot is more likely the job for men. You should also decide whether you want to work indoors or outdoors. When taking a job we must take into consideration our standard of education and the knowledge of the foreign languages, especially the English language. To make the right choice, you should take into account your traits of character. It goes without saying that to become a good doctor you must be patient, caring and kind. A secretary has to be efficient and careful in order to do her work quickly and accurately. Salespeople need to be friendly and persuasive to get people buy their products. There are so many people who influence us in choosing our occupation.

Parents and friends play a very important role in our choice. When parents choose a future profession for their child, frequently the main reasons for the choice are: prestige, fashion, money, and opportunity to get a good job and later on a promotion, sometimes because elder children have the same profession: it runs in the family, so to speak. But you shouldn't forget that in every profession there are a lot of specialists who haven't found themselves, those, who even having an opportunity to get a good, prestigious job, have been unable to realize themselves. Helping their son or daughter choose a future profession, parents must to take into consideration the fact that school marks don't reflect the presence or absence of abilities for this or that subject at all. It is not a

secret that a lot of children's talents remain undeveloped due to unfavorable circumstances. From what age should parents pay attention to the professional orientation of their child? The earlier the better! Of course, you can only think about a concrete choice of a profession in the last forms of secondary school. But a part of the child's abilities and inclinations already reveal themselves by the age of three. Having recognized them with the help of the specialists, or with your own keen observations, you get an opportunity to develop the child more purposefully. This knowledge will help you to make the right choice of higher education. Mothers and fathers must remember that, first of all, they have to take their children's preferences into account: one can hardly be

successful in a profession that one doesn't like. When you have chosen a profession, try to find out as much as possible about it. Together with the child, visit a probable higher educational institution, talk to graduates who have already got the profession or who already have diplomas. You may also view a list of job offers according to the profession you've chosen. If you can, visit a likely place of work, get some information on working conditions, working hours, perspectives, and salaries.
