Abstract [en]

During the last couple of years, the young workforce has been described as lazy and uninvolved in debate articles. At the same time the job market is changing and there is a growing need for workers. Lower birth rates and retirements contribute to this imbalance. The healthcare sector is a part of the job market that has a great need for recruitments. The challenge of recruitment is partly due to the fact that interest in care and welfare education has decreased. The study has been defined and consists of 18-year-old students who pursue vocational training specializing in care and welfare. The study will examine the feelings these students have concerning their choice of education, the future and the job market. In order to gain a picture of their thoughts and opinions, a qualitative study has been carried out through semi-structured interviews with five students. The results show that these students chose this education because they had a desire to work with people and that the choice was made independently and with the support from family and friends. The students have many thoughts about the future and can imagine several types of occupation. According to them, the choice of occupation depends on the opportunities that are available, and the thoughts about the future are permeated by flexibility and adaptability. A general conception is that they have a good opportunity of being employed when they finish their education. This means that they have some insight into the needs of the job market.
