INTRODUCTION 
The New Webster’s Dictionary of English Language (1992) define career as “Progress through life with respect to ones work; a means of earning a living; a profession”. This is synonymous with occupation, which is seen as an “activity by which one earns one’s living or fills one’s time, or an instance of this.”

Career can be considered as the way the individual expresses himself and relates to society through life. Popoola, (2004) sees it as a job, or profession for which one undergoes regulated education and training over a period of time and which one intends to follow for the whole of one’s life. It is thus a chosen pursuit, life work and success in one’s profession. It is the sequence of major positions occupied by a person throughout his/her lifetime. It is the totality of work one does in one’s working life or a course pursued over a period of time (Oyetade, 2001).

Choosing a career by the individual is one of the most important yet, difficult decisions to make in lifetime, since every one reserves that right to make the choice. In modern society, every individuals always have concern for this need though dealing with it without a real understanding of how individuals make their choice. A child dreams of what to become in future but finds out that the goals to be attained in life changes just as the preferred career became largely influenced by what is possible to be done. The individual looks forward to a fulfilment in a chosen career by it reward system, although its rewards are not the same for everyone, some are into  career by it reward system, although the rewards are not the same some are into careers so as to be looked up to, others derive great satisfaction from a job well done. 

Career choice is one of the most important decision in the life of an individual. It has far-reaching implications on the individuals future in terms of lifestyle, status, income, security and job satisfaction. Although, personal philosophy, achievement and self-image are important factors in this decision, the external environment is also very influential in characterizing career and shaping aspirations. The value an individual holds influences the success and failures he experience, the social class in which he has developed and his interests, strength and capacities are only some of the factors which is not merely a decision of a moment but a complex and difficult process spanning years, if not a lifetime (Ginzberg, Aelrad and Herma, 1951). 

An individual need is one of the important factor that determine the choice of his/her career. Other factors include important people in one’s life, parent, admired works, work experience and peer influence.

Students all over the world are often faced with the herculean task of career decision taking. The choice of careers, subject and courses of study in schools and of subsequent paths to follow arealways difficult problems facing prospective undergraduates. Often, choosing the right subject combination leading to the right profession can make the difference between enjoying and detesting a career.
