Abstract.  Strengthening work on vocational guidance of the younger generation is a requirement of modern society. The school has always “supplied” students with knowledge of the basics of science, introduced them to the main problems facing our country. This article shows the career guidance opportunities of the school course in geography of Russia. Acquaintance with professions is carried out: when working with the text of the textbook, during practical work in the classroom and at the enterprise. The geography course program allows you to give 9th grade students significant information about some professions related directly to the educational material. These are most often such professions as: metalworker, machine operator, field breeder, livestock breeder, electrician for repair and maintenance of electrical equipment, design engineer. The article provides detailed information about industries and an introduction to them in geography lessons. The teacher should categorize the industry material to cover the entire training that can be offered in the study of economic geography. It is concluded that today geography teachers do not have enough scientific and methodological recommendations for acquaintance with professions in different industries of our country. It is noted that in all the main areas of career guidance opportunities, it is necessary to constantly update the teaching methodology in specific conditions, which would be the main one for improving the educational process to gain knowledge on the subject, in this case, geography. Vocational guidance training should ensure not only the development of erudition, it is designed to ensure their socialization – the upbringing of all the mental traits of students necessary for society: perseverance, attentiveness of literacy, or in general, to teach them to work.
