A person’s performance for a vocation is influenced by the aspirations and choice of their parents. This may result in an unsatisfactory placement of the student. However, it is important to note that the vocational choice should be decided more on the individual’s ability, interest, aptitude, rather than on parental aspirations alone. Some individuals are often found to be dissatisfied in the work they are doing and are not properly adjusted, to the work environment leading to frustration, state of stress, diminished productivity, etc. An Unfavourable attitude of any individual is not conducive for the work culture in any organization.  Efforts must consciously be made by educational institutions to work towards developing a positive attitude towards work in their students. If this can be done in the institution, it can be expected that there would be a transfer of this in the work situation. The success or failure of a person in a vocation depends upon, many others factors including satisfaction one derives from the vocation. satisfaction results from working in harmony with one’s own potentialities, strengths, weaknesses, etc. A well organized system of vocational information readily available to students and set up which encourages students and trains them to find out the available information about careers, from the basis for the choice of vocational e strategies.
