EFFECT OF CAREER CHOICE ON STUDENTS’ ACADEMIC PERFORMANCE IN SENIOR SECONDARY SCHOOLS
BACKGROUND OF STUDY
Career selection is one of the main important choice in students plans. This choice of decision will have impact on them throughout their lives. The essence of who the students are, will revolve around what the students wants to do with his or her choice of career. The oxford advanced learners dictionary, 6th edition of current English defines choice as the right to choose or the possibility of choosing and also defines career as a job or profession especially one with opportunities for promotion. According to Johnson (1976) defined career as ones lifework in order words, career is ones profession which includes a number of occupation, vocations or jobs one person engage in during his or her working life. Career is the course of events that constitute a life, the sequence of occupations and other life roles which combine express ones commitment to work in his or her total pattern of self development.
Parents’ educational and occupational background may affect students choice of career because some students may contemplate on whether to continue with their parents occupation or not. What the students see in the television also may affect their career choice some careers demand that you have the personality to match the qualities of the occupation. For these reasons the necessity of a guidance counsellor on schools cannot be over emphasized. A career guidance counsellor is needed to unreliable and dangerous source in search of career information such as culture peer groups which can lead to their graduating into armed robbery and other criminal business unintentionally. This study will be carried out in Egor Local Government Area of Edo State will be useful to the guidance counsellors in assisting senior students in their career also help the ministry of education in curriculum planning to widen the students career choice opportunities through curriculum content of educational system.
According to National Policy on Education, a school is incomplete without a counsellor’s office. If you are teaching biology and the child does not understand it, there must be problems that need to be sported out. It could be psychological problems that are affecting the child’s concentration. Until you solve that problem, the child may not make any progress. Both the public and private schools need progress. Even tertiary institutions need counsellors. Everybody needs counselling.
The factors that may influence choice of career include;
i. Socio economic factors
ii. Personal or family factors
iii. Cultural factors which include schools, peer group and age groups.
STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM
Parental influence in making right career choices when you talk about career or career information, parent can contribute, but the final decision is taken by the chooser. Upsurge in deviant behaviour among pupils the blame goes to us, the mothers of these children our mothers labored to bring the children up. Both the present generation of mothers have allowed their homes to fall. If homes are in ruins and you engage a counsellor in the school to talk to these children, the impact would not make much difference. On the other hand, children from stable homes are more disposed to gain from the school counsellor. I believe a counsellor can feel the vacuum created by the negligence of some parents to cater for their children, but the result is often exceptionally wonderful roles.
