- Are students in Vietnam clear about their careers from the beginning?
Unfortunately, no. Most students in Vietnam have no idea what they are going to do in the future even when they’ve made their way to college or university. This is possibly due to the absence of career orientation programs in secondary and high school curriculums.
- Who is better to give children advice on their future career? Parents or teachers?
I’d say teachers seem to be in a better position to give them career advice. While parents spend more time on a personal level with children, they might not stay updated of the future job market and might push their kids into a dead-end job. Teachers tend to be more insightful and alert of social development, so their advices would probably be more relevant.
- In your country, what kinds of advice do parents usually give their children?
Well, there is a ton of advice that children in Vietnam usually receive from their parents. The most common ones are what to wear, whom to be friends with, which schools to attend, what subjects to choose and who to love and marry. Vietnamese parents do have substantial influence on their kids.
- Which areas do you think would be risky for parents to give advice on?
Well, as I mentioned it would be risky for parents to advise their kids on job and career stuffs. They might not have sufficient knowledge and experience in a wide range of disciplines or not be fully aware of what’s going to be in high demand. Also they tend to force their own will and preference on their children, which is usually undesirable and counter-productive.
- Do you think teenagers like to listen to their parents’ advice?
Definitely, not. I’ve been there. Adolescence is a tough period for everyone. Although their body and mind have not fully developed, teenagers always assume they’ve already grown up and try to act as an independent adult. They tend to have arguments with their parents more frequently and often ignore their advice. This is just a way to assert themselves.
