    One of the most important life decisions one takes as an adolescent is the choice of education and future career.This decision becomes even more difficult when the possibilities of further training are limited as they are in the case of the adolescents finishing school programmes which had been adapted to lower educational standards i.e. for persons with mild intellectual and developmental disabilities.We researched career counselling services in elementary and middle schools and found that in school curriculum there are still not classes designed to cover career counselling. This diploma essay poses presumption that the adolescents with mild intellectual and developmental disabilities are totally unequiped with accomplishements, skills and routines required for a successful entry into labour market. A group of 15 adolescents took part in 9 workshops and aquired some skills and routines to serve them when entering labour market.Having followed their work our conclusion was that although the work had been well directed and focused they have still not reached the level at which they were able to independently write their applications for work and their curriculum vitae.Our conclusion, therefore, is that further work on similar programmes for adolescents with intellectual and developmental disabilities is essential to help them bridge the stress of horizontal passage and entry into labour market.
