WHAT IS THE MEANING OF BUILDING A CAREER FUTURE & WHY SHOULD YOU THINK ABOUT IT?
The biggest problem of students and bachelors of faculty of law is not knowing their profession and what it is supposed to be. Every year, Faculties of Law in Turkey graduates thousands of people, but they do not make a contribution to its graduates about future planning during the education and training process. The internship program in school years that is mandatory in all other professions is, unfortunately, practiced by hardly any Faculty of Law. After graduation, the students in the Faculties of Law gain their places in the market for the purpose of fulfilling the requirements of the system without making a plan or setting a goal. In other words, they start their law internship while trying to understand the profession. The internship can be either exhausting or hebetating, depending on the intensity and the type of the work that the employer attorney does. Unfortunately, many interns, instead of learning the principles of law, repeatedly do attachment proceedings, rush around at the doorstep of the court rooms or work as an office boy or a secretary in a lawyer’s office. It is an undeniable fact that this and similar internships do not please the intern lawyers and increase their despair. An unproductive internship period disinclines many lawyers in the very beginning of their profession and unfortunately, influences their point of view on the profession in a negative way. In the internship period, it is highly important for the employer attorney to personally pay attention to the intern, to determine which field of law the intern has capability and to what extent and to encourage the intern to follow that particular field. It shouldn’t be forgotten that an unproductive internship period will affect the intern’s whole professional life in a negative way. Lawyer’s career path is shaped by the choices they made in their first years. Therefore, making the right choice is highly important. In addition to this, selection of a field is one of the important criteria. Specializing in a particular field, also having a grasp of other subjects have importance on personal development and achieving one’s goals. Only the people who doesn’t have good knowledge on conventional subjects of law has little to no chance to be successful on a specific field. Law is a whole, over-specializing on a specific field shouldn’t prevent you from seeing the whole.
