Why are they oriented at all on models?


The ideal is that especially young people choose their profession according to their personal abilities. In reality, a number of studies show that this is not the case - much more is looked after as role models in one's own family or - as a substitute - for celebrities.

It is also logical: Hardly anyone can estimate at the age, in which he is to decide for a training, which job he wants to do all his life. Since one is inevitably oriented on what one already knows.

The facts


Several studies, for example from the German Institute for Economic Research, the Allensbach Institute for Demoscopy or data from the PISA study, show that parents make a major contribution to the career choices of their children.

But also the media and the internet are important - for example, the young people want to become a doctor like Dr. House or "do something with the media".

Who only trots after the herd ...


The well-known saying that I do not have to reproduce completely here is also and especially for the career choice as a foundation for the later life path.

For those who have only known in sight, lose sight of the unimagined possibilities still exist. And the studies also show that the young people would like to be able to pick the right out of the immeasurable mass of training courses.

Lifelong learning


It's just a pity that most parents and teachers focus on "safe" 9 5 jobs, which will be less and less in the future, rather than specifically promoting new ideas.

Much more should help the young people to lay a secure foundation on which they can then build more experience - keyword lifelong learning.

The training is just the beginning


Because that's where the journey will go: No longer is training required for one, a lifelong job or even a career in one Company.

On the other hand, the aspect of lifelong learning, for which a good education can be the starting point, is becoming more and more important - according to the motto: First of all, lay a good foundation, then later you can do whatever you want.
