Medicine, military and law Russians believe their children are now the most promising areas of employment, while fewer of those who are ready to accept any decision of the child when choosing a career, the survey showed the all-Russia centre of studying of public opinion (VTSIOM).

Sociologists have decided to find out the ideas of Russians about the ideal profession for children. The survey showed that the most attractive now and in the last ten years, are the medical profession. And over the years the desire to see their children health workers growing: today, more than a third (35%) of Russians who have children or grandchildren, call your preferred profession (12% in 2005).

While the financial scope of activities is not considered as relevant: in 2009 the profession of a financier or accountant would choose for a child 17% of parents today — only 9%, say sociologists. In 2005, the business wanted to see their kids 7%, while in 2017 this profession called only 2% of respondents.

The survey showed that the proportion of those who are willing to accept any decision of the child when choosing a profession has fallen from 13% in 2005 to 4% in 2017.

Research Director VTSIOM Elena Mikhailova noted that in recent years there has been a significant transformation in the perception of different sectors of employment. According to her, due to the measures taken to improve the level of financial security and social status of doctors, teachers, military personnel, the attractiveness of employment in these areas increased significantly.

“In General, the results indicate significant positive dynamics — less close relatives are willing to recommend their children to choose a specialty solely on the basis of potential return, giving preference to the most humane and socially significant areas. The structure of expectations of Russians on the professional future of children today, more than a decade ago, meets the current needs of the labor market that provides the potential for the harmonious development of society,” — said Mikhailov.
