The most important criteria of the young people for the career choice be met in the social Professions only partially: you rate, the more development and career opportunities of this profession is critical and perceive the content as too low. A Central role in the Career choice of the parents and friends play.

The interest of the young people with high educational qualifications and in the case of the young men has yet to be awakened.
