ABSTRACT

Vocational preference will affect students in their vocational decision making and train
them about lifelong career management skills. Vocational choice covers the
explanations about student’s features such as; career tendencies, learning styles,
preferred working environment, weaknesses-strengths, skills. When students and
teachers know students’ learning styles the academic success will increase because
students will know the better way to study and teacher will know how to behave
students that have different learning styles. Students will be able to determine their
professional tendencies based on academic study and concrete results, rather than
choosing one that is mostly common or demanded.
