Family members, educators, and counsellors are key agents in accompanying adolescents in self-knowledge and the search for their vocational identity. This accompaniment should begin in stages prior to adolescence so that when they reach this stage, the support received from adults has prepared them to make decisions for themselves, choosing those options that respond to their deepest motivations. Although the current generations of young people have extraordinary technological resources that facilitate their access to higher studies and professional field, they find it difficult in previous stages to lay the foundations for coping with this process. The lack of training and criteria, the difficulty of self-knowledge, together with the ease of peer influence in decision-making, highlight the importance of intensifying personal and professional guidance during this stage of adolescence.
