oa Civil Engineering = Siviele Ingenieurswese - Changing career perceptions and technikon qualifications

Volume 6, Issue 5
  • ISSN : 1021-2000



Perceptions and expectations regarding any individual's career change periodically during his working life.

No matter how good the career guidance available to students, very few students know what the real conditions are at the coal face of their chosen careers. Students choose their careers because of peer pressure or because a particular career is fashionable, because their parents want them to study (sometimes in a particular career) or because of the availability of a bursary. Only a relatively small number of students make good informed choices.
