Suleyman Alpaslan SULAK, Murat KOKLU, Kemal TUTUNCU

Abstract


One of the most important functions of guidance services within the training process is to direct the students to the appropriate professions in line with their interests, tendencies and needs. One of the main objectives of primary education is to direct students to schools that are suitable for the profession they will choose by recognizing their professions. The main aim of the vocational guidance activities to be carried out in high school is to determine in which areas the students have abilities, not exactly which profession they will choose. The main aim of the guidance services to be done should be to make the student know himself and make realistic preferences. Most people are unaware of what areas they are interested in before they start to a work or an occupation. As long as people live and specialize, they learn about their own interests. Various methods are used to measure students' interests. One of them is to use inventories and the other one is to ask the area where the student is directly interested. However, direct inquiries of student interest may not yield very healthy results. This is because, rather than their interests, the student has a tendency towards interests of the community and occupations that are considered prestigious in society. Many inventories are used to determine occupational trends. In this study, "Occupational Tendency Determination Scale" was applied to 650 students studying at Meram Science High School, Selcuklu Science High School and Karatay Science High School in Konya. It has been determined that students predominantly tend to have three professions. These are group C (law, political science, business etc.), group H (doctor, pharmacist, dentist etc.) and group J (computer, construction, electrical-electronics and industrial engineering etc.).
