Some 54% of Hungarian adults rank interest as first among their career choices, with less than a quarter considering future earnings and a secure livelihood as their primary focus.

The results are according to a representative survey conducted in July with the pulse research application of MTM Kft. on behalf of OTP Bank, according to hrportal.hu.

The research found that 12% of respondents said competence could be the decisive criterion in determining their professional future. It has been found that one in four parents would start their child in a technical or IT career, but popular choices include economics and medicine.

The study included 1,483 people from the population over 18 years of age.
