Profession, as a sociological category, produces far-reaching consequences both in life sphere of an individual and in social life. Proper selection of profession and formation of positive attitudes towards it is of special importance in the socialist society. The article discusses selected problems concerning selection of profession and shaping of attitude to the profession among young people. Surveys conducted among pupils of senior school forms and young workers prove that profession and its selection belong to the most important life problems. Despite that when selecting a profession not all the interviewed possessed full information about it, which also exerts some influence on the fact that fifty per cent of the interviewed admit divergence between their idea of the profession and its real features. In another survey, over a half of those learning a profession state that a given profession was not taken into account at all as a „desirable one”. This situation is determined by numerous factors including among others professional advisory centres, which do not meet the expectations. Parents, friends, and acquaintances continue to exert a decisive influence on decisions concerning selection of a profession and obtaining information about it. Of essential importance for the quality of information is here a profession and education background of those providing information. The author postulates introduction of innovations to the system of vocational advisory services which will allow to bridge the „information gap” about professions and combine subjective needs of young people with interests of the socialist economy.
