The adolescent in a society is expected to undergo the process of choosing a profession. This choice of lifework is crucial. It determines one’s life style.

The growing needs and understanding of the importance of making the right career decision is recognized in the Philippines today. The high school senior student who chooses a career makes a crucial decision in his life. This decision may have influenced by a continuing process which started at early childhood. The trend towards giving the youth more and more freedom to make some decision may bring about the number of problems in his choice of career. It is most important that a young person has decide early enough what he is going to do in adulthood and then proceed to prepare himself for the chosen career even when he still pursuing a secondary education. It is at his stage he needs some guidance, since he may be over-ambitious, under-ambitious or even ambitious. The assistance that a high school senior student needs most for the guidance center that provides in-formal services is involved through information about occupations and his potentialities. He needs some kind of overview about his probable vocation. Occasional waste and disappointment are unavoidable. Good counseling can at least direct him along a path that he is not likely to regret having followed when he starts earning a livelihood.

SCOPE AND DELIMITATION

This study was confined to the career preferences of the fourth year students of St. Joseph Academy of Valenzuela in the school year 2009-2010. It ascertained the career orientation activities provided to fourth year students to which these activities have assisted to the students in making their career choices. This study also included their grades and favorite subjects in relationship to their career. The reasons behind the students’ career choices were not included in this study.

RELATED LITERATURE AND STUDY

This part of the study presents the related literature and studies review by the researcher to give adequate background of the topic under this study.
Factors that affects students in choosing their career according to some psychologists A number of psychologist and some educators have considered such factors like interest, parental influenced, home, opportunity, experiences and the way the child was reared. The different views and ideas of psychologists and educators are helpful to the students in a way of giving enlightenment as far as choosing a career I concerned. Moreover, the researcher believes that these ideas, findings and views are in some way related to the present research. Some students got into the course wherein he does not belong or is vocationally misplaced, it is a big problem. The problem of vocationally misplaced person can be trying of frustrating, because the job for him does not possess the necessary knowledge and skills or because he has neither motivation nor interest on the work he has engaged in. The person himself helpless. Sooner or later, he becomes an impotent worker. In this state of affairs, it is not only the institution

that suffers but also the person and his family, the community and ultimately, the country. One reason why an individual becomes vocationally misplaced is because the individual itself was not the one who chose the course he is engaged in. It was the parent or another person who decided for him to take that course. Ordonez reflects some of the misconception affecting wrong choice of occupation affecting wrong choice of occupation such as: Parents want their son to enter the law profession because of social prestige it offers. Parents believe that their son have a fire opportunity to carry on the same business as their fathers.

The influence of parents in choosing career. Munnariz also viewed the fact that after examining Philippine studies on vocational preferences she comes to conclude that parental influence seemed not disregarded along with interest, socio-economic status, service to society and opportunities. It is really a dream for the parents for their son to get in college. They prefer a college degree for their son than a non-degree or vocational courses. According to Camarao, it is common knowledge in the Philippines that most parents desire for their children to have a college degree. Filipino parents would rather enroll their children in a degree courses rather than non-degree programs because of the social prestige the professional degree offered. A throughout preparation for the career choice of the students needs a complete understanding in the world of work, knowledge about his potentialities and situation where he is getting into. According to Isaacson, the livelihood of effective satisfying choice is increased in direct proportion to the extent of their knowledge of themselves f the world of work and any that play vital role in goal setting.

...Educational Computer Game and Exploring Adolescents’ Gaming Beliefs” that previous studies indicate that computer-assisted instruction (CAI) programs have important factors that can motivate, challenge, increase curiosity and control, and promote fantasy in children. Despite the fact that computer and video games gave the same multimedia capability as CAI programs, Begg et. al. (2005) stressed in their study “Game-Informed Learning: Applying Computer Game Processes to Higher Education” that their potential learning impact is often discounted by parents and educators. Recently, computer-based video games presence and popularity have been ever-growing, and game developers and researchers have started to investigate video games impact on students’ cognitive learning. For, example Pillay (2002) commenced a study entitled “Journal of Research on Technology in Education” investigating the influence of recreational computer games on children’s subsequent performance on instructional tasks. While game-playing is regarded somewhat negative in educational settings, particularly for young children, re-scrutinization of its influence in a teaching and learning context is crucial. This study investigated whether computer-based video games facilitate children’s cognitive learning achievement. In comparison to traditional CAI programs, this study explored the impact of the varied types of instructional delivery strategies on children’s learning achievement. Research results from the......

This simply means that education can pave the way to an individual’s better and promising future. This is the very reason why the Philippine Constitution provides for at least free formal basic education, more particularly in public schools Formal basic education under the new educational system in the country is now popularly known as K-12, which begins with the kindergarten and proceeds to 12 years in the elementary and secondary level.

However, this perception is not supported by the results of clinical studies comparing the physiological and subjective effects of injected heroin and morphine in individuals formerly addicted to opioids; these subjects showed no preference for one drug over the other. Equipotent injected doses had comparable action courses, with no difference in subjects' self-rated feelings of euphoria, ambition, nervousness, relaxation, drowsiness, or sleepiness.[19] Short-term addiction studies by the same researchers demonstrated that tolerance developed at a similar rate to both heroin and morphine. When compared to the opioids hydromorphone, fentanyl,oxycodone, and pethidine/meperidine, former addicts showed a strong preference for heroin and morphine, suggesting that heroin and morphine are particularly susceptible to abuse and addiction. Morphine and heroin were also much more likely to produce euphoria and other positive subjective effects when compared to these other opioids.[19] Some researchers have attempted to explain heroin use and the culture that surrounds it through the use of sociological theories. In Righteous Dopefiend, Philippe Bourgois and Jeff Schonberg use anomie theory to explain why people......
