Group 1 The aims of our work are : 1) to learn the world of professions; 2) to learn the words easily confused (job, profession, occupation, work, employment, career); 3) to find and digest the materials in the Internet; 4) to prepare the materials to make web-sites, pupils presentations and publications.
Weve learnt that: The word profession comes from the Latin professio and means "public performance." Romans used this word for occupation to which the man devoted himself and which was announced in publicly. There are more than 50 thousand of professions in the world. The world of professions is immense and volatile. Every year a lot of new jobs appear. They exist only for years and then they disappear or change beyond recognition.
Weve learnt the words: Job – the work sb does to earn money, employment. Career – a job or profession for which one is trained and which one intends to follow for the whole of ones life. Profession – job requiring advanced education or training. Occupation – a persons regular work or profession. Work – particular task sb has to do in their job/ the place where sb does their job. Employment – work, esp. in return for regular payment.
Our conclusion is: There are thousands of professions in the world. Do you want to choose the one that best suits you? Try to get to know the maximum number of them. It is difficult to make a choice if you do not know anything! Live and learn!

Weve visited the local employment agency and interviewed them
The clerks of our local employment agency gave us some instructions
How to Choose a Profession Write down what you're good at, any special abilities you have, and what you're interested in. Use the list of what you're good at to make a new list of possible professions that match those talents and abilities. Write down everything you can think of and use the help of others and the Internet to make your list even longer. Look at the list you've created and branch out even further from that list.
Read your final list thoroughly and think of the logistics of each possible profession. Ask yourself questions like "Would this require me to move far away from my family?," "How much can I make annually doing this?," "What will I have to do to actually become this?" and narrow down the list. Go through your narrowed-down list again and choose your top three choices on the list based on the questions you've asked yourself and any thoughts given by family and friends.
Find, in your local phone book if possible, others who are involved with the top three professions from your list. Contact each person by phone or and ask them questions about the profession. Dont stop until you have found a profession that you really have a passion for and that fits your interests and/or talents. Don't be discouraged if it takes a long time.
Our conclusion is: There are lots of different sources of information about professions. All of them are useful. You can follow somebodys advice or make your own decision. Choosing a career takes deep thought and research.
