The present article outlines the issue of trends and student guidance experiences in the teaching career at the international level as many European countries face the problem of having graduates opt for a teaching career. At present, there are still no framework regulations, or normative acts providing training of students in general education on the choice of a teaching profession in the Republic of Moldova. The students’ choice is usually determined by the family’s option, and not by the profession to which they are inclined. Since the issue of graduates’ choice on a teaching profession is a debatable one, in terms of the perceptions they have about it, many European countries are working on implementing various tools to solve the problem.
