themselves (23.9%). Therefore, they can innovate and promote their abilities and especially they
will be aware of and orientate which career suits best. 46.3% students in the survey thought that
career-oriented activities give them both of three benefits which are mentioned above.
The fact that career guidance gives students many benefits which support future
career’students a lot. Vocational counseling could reduce the number of changing vocational

Opportunities and challenges
Choosing a career is one of the hardest things that people have to do in life. It is not only
pays the bills but one that is also satisfying and above all brings value both to yourself and those
you interact with. This section will show the opportunities and challenges of IBD students who
choose a career.

In this part, personnel can acknowledge clearly about career opportunities offered to IBD
The psychology of careers. New York, NY: Julian Messner.
Figure 5 Career opportunities offered to IBD students
Figure 6 Source of information
From the figure 6, it could be seen 6 main jobs chance that students can make a choice
after they graduate from IBD. It shows that IBD students have many opportunities into
experiences and training. According to the research of Thanh Tran said that: "The battle for
human resources" is perhaps never as hot as it is today. Students have a lot of job opportunities
after graduation, and countless channels to find out about employers and get access to "n"
messages from employers. (Thanh Tran. (2016))5. As the figure out, the most popular jobs which
people really is a Marketing executive, which accounts for 40.3% (27 students) of all 5 jobs. It
demonstrates that this job is very competitive and interesting. Nevertheless, there are 13.4% of
students in the survey who choose a recruitment consultant. Perhaps because of this job requires
learning and thinking about the best way to manage your customers and candidates. Besides, the
number of students who would like to Customer service officer (37.3%), Financial Adviser
(37.3%), Learning Experience Officer (34.3%) is most the same. In general, there are stable
office jobs and requirements for these jobs are not too complex. The figure for the shop assistant
Moreover, figure 7 supplies people the source of information which is mentioned above. Most of
the students identified through the subjects that they were studied in IBD (44.8%). Another
source that people can find limitation is Internship which participated by 29.9% students in this
survey. Furthermore, doing consultations seems to be the least popular way to make people know
more about their career chance.
To sum up, figure 6&7 not only shows 6 opportunities of jobs that students can be got but also
furnishes source provided that.
6. Career challenges
Difficulties of choosing a career
While some people are lucky to know what they want to do for the rest of their lives, others
are not so sure caused by a lot of difficulties. There are some reasons that students have to face.
Figure 7 Difficulties of choosing a career
The most noticeable point is the percent of students’ chose that failed to catch up with
labor market demand. It occupies 43.3% (29 students) of the total number of students who
answered this question. This figure shows that most students worry about labor market demand a
lot. The first and most important cause still comes from the students, the family, and the school
before you enter the University. In Vietnam, the choice of career depends on the parent or career
trends "hot", the opportunity to contact and understand the work in a society with you almost
zero. (Pham Phuong. (2017)). 6Besides, Deputy PM Vu Duc Dam once said: "You can graduate
from university after 4 years, you do not think the knowledge from books, friends, teachers,
work ... can contribute to society. The university offers you basic knowledge but important is the
method and more towards the necessary skills when born.” (Quyen Quyen. (2015))7It could be
said that the college Degree is not at all. Students need to be flexible and develop themselves in
many aspects as required by today’s ever-evolving era. Therefore, this is actually quite difficult
Furthermore, the percentage of the remaining three issues is not small, accounting for
over 10%. Consent of relative with 28.4% (19 students), suitability with ability and character
occupies 14.9% (10 students), and do not know what i am passionate about accounts for 13.4%
(9 students). A lot of Vietnamese students have to choose their career according to their parents’
expectations or inherit the traditions of their family. However, students do not really love those
jobs. That leads to undesirable consequences as they do not feel disrespectful when choosing
their own careers and do not even know what they would like to be while everything arranged by
In conclusion, figure 8 gives a glimpse into the remarkable difficulties of choosing a career.
The most influential people on IBD students’ career choices
Making a career choice is one of the tricky decisions that one has to make in life. As much as
you want to do it right, there is no sure-fire way of doing it. So students usually need support
from many people such as parents, friends, teacher, and even themselve. This graph shows who
is the most influence on career choices’ IBD students.
Figure 8 The most influential on IBD students’ career choices
From the figure 8, most students in the survey acknowledged that parents are the biggest
influence on their career choices ( account for 56,70%). It has some reason can explain for this,
for example, young people cannot determine the path that suits them or parents’ educational
background may influence student views on whether or not to continue their education.
Furthermore, 13 students (19.4%) follow their friends’ choice and 14.90% (10 students) believe
in their decisions. Surprisingly, the number of choosing “friends” is quite large because it seems
so adventurous to follow friends who are immature. The other people influence on career choices
of students in survey are teachers. Although they are mature adults with enough knowledge to be
able to inspire students, there are 6 students (9%) choosing them.
Generally, parents could be seen as the most influential people in determining a student's career
but there are still people who support them like teachers ,friends.
The most important goal in career choices
Choosing the right career is always based on the goals that students would like to achieve in
their future careers. This graph will show the important target’s students which are aiming for.
Figure 9 The most important goal in career choices
As the chart figure 9, people can see opinion of IBD student’s the most important goal in
career choice. It can be seen that 37.2% students make a career choice follow their abilities
which take a highest point of 5 important goals. Taking a job suite for their abilities will make
you feel more comfortable and self- confident in their jobs. On the other hand, degree of selfsufficency (account for 3%) seems to be least important aim in job choice. Besides, Family
foundation and favorite level for work had the same percentage about 20.90%. In Vietnamese
society nowadays, family backgrounds greatly contribute to the advancement of their work.
Along with that, favorite level for the job will determine and persistence you have for the job.
Pham Manh Ha professor said "Choosing the right job is a way for children to enjoy working 8
hours a day, to feel valued when they feel the joy of contributing to society”. (Hoang Phuong.
(2015)) 8Finally, the percentage of salary constant decrease 3% in comparison with 2 types of
goal which are mentioned above. It can be said that salaries are the decisive factor for people to
accept work or not.
Overall, everybody has a purpose in choosing a career and in which the most important is in
accordance with ability.
Career selection is one of many important choices students will make determining future
plans. This is decision will impact them throughout their life. Besides, career planning
encourages individuals to explore and gather information, which enables them to synthesize, gain

competencies, make decisions, set goals and take action. Therefore, making a plan or setting
goals is a way to help students. It is not only developing themselves but also find out what is
right for them.

potential employers. A career plan will provide students with tools and information to help them
