In the present article the authors will direct their attention to the processes of selection of young, highly educated graduates in economics on the job market. It is known that career planning involves a proper strategy in order to obtain a certain job especially one that suits best with the academic training. It is of high importance the idea that self-knowledge, self-evaluation and understanding of the young academic graduates own limits and skills, interests, values, personal or occupational preferences will help them to articulate their own way in their search for a suitable profession. In light of all the existing realities in the labour market, information and verification of employment opportunities, young graduates, and not only them, will be able to anticipate the opportunities and avoid the negative situations that might affect them emotionally, thus losing their confidence in their own forces and in their ability to adapt and reinvent themselves if necessary. It is appropriate to evaluate and identify all the alternatives, to select the best solution and to act accordingly. Setting a career plan is another essential step in the success of a graduate. More than that, determining individual goals in order to find the ideal job and planning ways of obtaining the objective to be attained are also crucial.
