Abstract

The authors review in the paper the necessity of changing the teaching style in universities, mostly in accordance to the progress of industry and social needs, and based specially on practical achievements, that complementary support the theoretical development of the student. A student that graduates without serious internship training, with no experience from the real economy, is from the beginning handicapped, and must adapt himself and support jobs from various fields of activity. The authors reveal results achieved by processing and interpretation of the questionnaires answers on reports regarding career development through counselling and practice, experienced through the Regional Operational Programme Human Resources Development, at trans-national level, dedicated to support financially and technically the students development, in real economy conditions, towards a career. The questionnaire was designed in order to evaluate different aspects and was available on the project website; focussing on: (i) integrated concept of career development through periods of student practice and career counselling; (ii) report on ways of career development through periods of student practice, and (iii) evaluation report of the results offered by counselling.
