Abstract. The gifted youth аre a strategic intellectual resource for the development of all countries in the long term. The priority direction of activity concerning the formation of creative potential of the gifted youth representatives is the creation of conditions for the actualization of their creative abilities and interests in the course of their professional determination. The purpose of this theoretical and applied research is to study the factors affecting the professional selfdetermination of representatives of gifted youth, as well as to identify the most significant features of this process. The authors analyzed the results of theoretical works of domestic and foreign researchers; they studied official statistical data. As the methodological basis of their research the authors suggest a questionnaire survey of 956 representatives of the working youth, conducted in 2017 in the cities of Tyumen, Tobolsk, Ishim. The licensed version of IBM SPSS Statistics 23 was used to analyze empirical data. Investigating the issue the researchers found out that the presence of young people with high abilities in any field during training at school and institutions of the secondary vocational and higher education contributes to the choice of their work on the profile of education in future, as well as a higher assessment of their personal and competitive potential, professional competence. At the same time, respondents from this group express great interest in moving to another country, despite concerns about the future of Russia. The authors confirm the assumption, that respondents have higher abilities in a certain area contributes to a more active process of their professional self-determination, greater stability and depth of their professional interests in the chosen field of activity. The results obtained in the course of the study may be useful for teachers and psychologists engaged in career guidance activities in the framework of work with gifted children and adolescents, as well as representatives of secondary professional and higher education organizations to develop effective measures of career guidance in relation to applicants.

Key words: gifted youth, professional self-determination, representatives of working youth, self-realization, competitiveness.
