Teachers of the Department of Foreign Languages of Humanities O.M. Sherekhova, L.N. Yusupov and T.M. Tatarina organized and held a career guidance meeting with the 9th grade students of the Specialized School of Arts No. 1 in Petrozavodsk.
Choosing a future profession is the most difficult choice for schoolchildren. It is not easy to make the right choice from the variety of universities, therefore it is important to organize career guidance events in advance, when the student has enough time to compare the prospects of studying in different universities in Russia. Class teachers in schools conduct career guidance conversations and tests with students, but a live meeting with representatives of a higher educational institution significantly motivates and inspires students, they themselves admit.
As the survey of schoolchildren has shown, ninth-graders are very attracted by the prospect of studying in their native land, but they know little about the flagship university of Karelia. At the request of the students, the teachers of PetrSU spoke about the admission campaign of PetrSU 2021. They spoke in detail about the passing score and the process of submitting documents. We introduced the schoolchildren to the website of the university and about the convenient online resource “PetrSU Landmark” and “Navigator” for future applicants. In addition to general information about PetrSU, ninth-graders were interested in learning conditions, taking into account individual achievements and popular directions for admission over the past year. The opportunity to receive an increased scholarship in case of special achievements in academic, scientific or sports activities caused genuine delight among schoolchildren.
At the school of arts, children study in several creative areas, and students in the specialty “Fine Arts” were particularly interested in the prospect of studying at PetrSU according to their profile. The teachers spoke about the Department of Technology, Fine Arts and Design at the Institute of Pedagogy and Psychology. Artists were attracted by the current direction of training, which trains specialists in graphic design, which makes it possible to find employment as designers in publishing houses, printing houses, design bureaus, advertising agencies, etc.
We would like to thank Olga Mikhailovna Lunina, class teacher of the 9 “A” class of the Specialized School of Arts No. 1, for her help in organizing the meeting,
