ChoiceLab is a new online resource which has been developed to aid vocational orientation for school pupils and higher education students in Germany. It launched in 2021. ChoiceLab supplements existing provision by concentrating on the non-tangible factors which inform occupational decisions. Does an occupation offer a good work-life balance? How demanding are the tasks to be performed, and what degree of autonomy can be expected in an occupational field? thus provides a service which goes beyond alignment to personal skills or financial incentives.
