This research aimed to reveal how prospective teachers viewed their professional future and to discern how their lives would be affected in case they were not recruited as teachers. The research was conducted on senior students at Buca Faculty of Education. The sample of the research consisted of 149 senior students, including 82 girls and 67 males. The data were collected through a measurement instrument developed for this research, consisting of six open-ended questions. In data analyses, Miles' and Huberman's approach, namely "data reduction", "data display" and "conclusion verification", was made use of. Some of the results of the research could be outlined as follows: About 40% of the participants attended the programs they had chosen unwillingly, 87% would like to work as teachers, 81% thought that working on contract was not fair, 34% stated that they would not work everywhere in the country, 81% had negative ideas about their professional future, and 91% thought that their lives would be affected very badly in case they were not appointed as teachers.
