Current economic and social activities require the presence of competent, stable, efficient and well-motivated human resources. Organizations are increasingly concerned with recruiting talented personnel highly competent in more particularized fields. Ensuring that is, in the authors’ opinion, a target not only of employers but also of future employees. A survey conducted by the MANPOWER Company on talent deficits shows that as the economic recovery process goes on, employers face higher difficulty in having job vacancies occupied in their companies despite the seemingly large number of candidates and the high rates of unemployment. In addition, it is thought that a reason why talent deficit cannot be made up for is related to the existing incompatibility between one’s type of personality and employee training/position held. The first step while building one’s career is the good knowledge of one’s self, along with an insight into one’s interests and concerns. Starting from this element, it is thought to be important to the youth to choose their careers – thus regarded as a vocational development and training process by means of the higher education system in relation to one’s own interests. The present paper envisages an emphasis of the connection between students’ choosing an education pattern and students’ personalities by applying the Holland Form.
