Admittedly, the choice of training is not an easy task for a young person. With an unclear content perspective in mind, for many, the salary is a decisive factor. There are, however, a few factors which play a role in career choice. What should not be forgotten, is what this contribution betrays.

Money rules the apprentice world. You should note this:


Obviously the salary in education is a crucial criterion for young people to choose for or against a vocational training.

Not only should the monthly remuneration within the training phase be in focus, that would be too short-sighted. Even more important is what salaries are common after successful final exams.

The best paid training


The best-paid traineeships are steel concrete builders, policemen and construction equipment managers. Here are according to an evaluation in the third year top salary of up to 1.400 Euro monthly possible.

The salary levels during the training differ from this: On average, 689 Euro in East or 751 Euro monthly salary in West Germany is being trained. This shows: Not only the remuneration IN the education is important, but also the afterwards. Not for nothing we recommend Best of HR – Berufebilder.de® Company, to enter both salary levels in the vacancy notice.

Money or low stress factor - what decides in the choice of training?


Of course, the salary is important for a young man who is going to earn his own money for the first time. However, the stress factor should also be taken into account when choosing the training profession. Many trainees complain about the stress level in training: over half complain according to a DGB study, The manifestations of and the reasons for stress in education and at work could not be more diverse. Two tendencies are briefly explained here:

  1. A clear sign of stress is the insomnia, In a survey, 42 percent stated that they were sleeping badly from night to night. These 10.225 people are only opposed to 5.210 people, who have never suffered from this kind of sleeping problems during their professional career.
  2. One possible source of stress is the demand for trainees and employees who are multitasking to their greatest strength. Only the few know this: Multitasking is usually more curse than blessing, because the disadvantages of this ability are enormous. There are not more tasks done, but only a little concentration on the individual tasks is used. And that means in quintessence: the frequency of errors increases.

4 Criteria for choosing the right vocational training


The stress factor on entering work and working life should therefore also be a decision criterion for the choice of training. Because permanent stress makes you sick. In order for this not to happen, opportunities must also be explored to make up for the stressful work routine. That means in detail:

  1. Fun: The fun factor can not be ignored even in the choice of the education profession. Of course, a trained professional must also be able to live on their wages. However, it also means that trainees wake up, go to sleep and like to go to work.
  2. How much do you earn later? Whoever wants to grant the salary a big role in the choice of a vocational traineeship should be told: not only the salary should decide, but also the salary as a skilled worker. In addition, some occupations provide better training opportunities than others. In everyday working life this means: with everyone Further education the salary can also rise.
  3. To be economical: Trainees should (financially) make small buns and be frugal. Anyone who reduces the financial pressure by living cheaply and buying cheaply will also cope with a comparatively low salary. The fun in the profession can be an attractive compensation factor here.
  4. Education funding: Especially for apprentices who no longer have the opportunity to live at home economically, there are other options. There are many possibilities for funding, BAföG on the BAB to housing subsidy. Thus, perhaps a low salary can be bridged at least temporarily.

Conclusion: Consider different factors when choosing the training profession


There is, of course, no recipe for the best way of choosing the best way to choose the education profession. However, we have listed some parameters that should be considered. The training profession is therefore not to be viewed in isolation, but in many cases it is much more multifaceted than originally conceived.

The educational content is certainly an important criterion, but it covers only the two to four-year training period. With a view to a successful, professional future, training options should be considered, which in the long term certainly have a positive effect on the salary.
