Choosing one’s career is an important step in everybody’s life. Most children have only vague ideas of what they want to be. At first they admire so called “hero” professions such as pilots, astronauts, firemen, policemen. Girls want to become actresses, models, singers or ballet dancers. But as they get older and mature their criteria for choosing their profession become more and more realistic, because they have to coordinate their own interests, hopes and desires. The influence of their parents, teachers, relatives and friends can’t be disregarded. Some children look up to their parents and want to follow in their footsteps. We can divided jobs into two groups. First group contains jobs which we can called manual or physical jobs. Physical works are done by cheap manpower people without graduation or university, miners and workers. Second group is called mental work.
Mental work is done by teachers, engineers or people in management.

In some countries you need to have a visa and a job permit.
