Career orientation

It is important for parents to help their children enter the labour market.
In this context parents always ask themselves the same questions: What possibilities do I have? How do I proceed? Where can I get further information? Who can help me/us?
When looking for the “right job” there are three important stages of career orientation: “Getting information”, “making a decision”, “submitting an application”.
