One of the biggest problems confronting the high school student is the selection of the profession or business in which he will fit best for his life work. This involves not only the consideration of his own personality, characteristics and inclinations, but also the question of opportunities which are, and will be, afforded in the various lines of work. Many high schools, especially in the larger cities, give some attention to vocational guidance which has for its purpose the assistance of students in the selection of their life's work.
