FORS AFFECTING SNDARY SCHOOL STUDENTS’ CAREER CHOICE

 

CHAPTER ONE

STUDY BACKGROUND

One of the most important decisions in a student’s life is choosing a . This decision will affect them for the rest of their lives. The essence of who the students are will revolve around what they want to do with their greatest blessings. Everyone is always looking for a legitimate job. Students’ perceptions of their surroundings, for example, students hired on an island may choose a dealing with water or they may choose to leave the island and never have anything to do with water again.

Parents’ educational and occupational backgrounds may influence students’ choices because some students may consider continuing in their parents’ occupation or not. What students see on television may also influence their choice. Some require you to have the personality to match the job’s requirements. For these reasons, the importance of a guidance counselor in schools cannot be overstated.

A guidance counsellor is required to avoid untrustworthy and dangerous sources of information, such as culture peer groups, which can unintentionally lead to them graduating into armed robbery and other criminal business. This study, which will be conducted in the Esan East Local Government Area of Edo State, will be useful to guidance counsellors in assisting senior students in their s, as well as to the ministry of education in curriculum planning to broaden the students’ career choice opportunities through educational system curriculum content.

Tuche (2002) is correct in stating that students in senior should consider their options; however, they will require guidance. Ipaye (1983) refers to the need to discuss options with peers, school counselors, parents, and teachers as a “ convention or conferences.” However, he considers convention to be a tool for information. This happens for a variety of reasons, including the following:

a. To stimulate exploration and broaden occupational horizons.

b. To concentrate attention on specific in order to assist an individual in crystallizing his preferences and

c. To create a situation in which parents can meet with employers and discuss the opportunities they provide, while also meeting with teachers or officers with whom they can exchange ideas.

Among the factors that may influence choice are:

i. Economic and social factors

ii. Personal or family circumstances

iii. Cultural factors such as schools, peer groups, and age groups.
