This article analyzes the factors determining professional careers of females from different social groups (convict, unemployed and those who achieved successful career). It is decided to classify those factors into two groups: subjective (education and personal qualities); and objective (age and parents' professional career). This article deals with a scientific problem formulated in the following questions: (1) How do females from different social groups (convict, long-term unemployed and successfully working females) assess the role of personal qualities and parents' professional careers for their personal careers? (2) What factors, in females' opinion, mostly determine the professional career? The aim of the survey is to reveal the convict, long-term unemployed and successfully working females' attitudes to the professional career formation factors. It has been found that females' education usually correlates with their attitudes to personal qualities, which may condition professional career, rather than their age. It means that education is an important factor determining different social group females' attitudes to personal qualities which are important for professional career. Personal education may be improved. Therefore, the role of educational processes becomes more important for professional career conception, professional career development and the formation of different social groups. Analyzing the attitudes of successfully working, long-term unemployed and convicting females to parents' professional careers, statistically important differences were not found. Only one statistically important but weak correlation was found when analyzing the relation between females' education, age and the attitudes to parents' professional careers. It means that females' education and age more often correlates with their attitudes to personal qualities, being important for professional careers, rather than with the attitudes to parents' professional careers.
