The skills of the practical contract formation of this document come up against the current problem that is the use of Internet information, which in its arsenal contains a significant number of "standard" labor contracts, which can be easily analyzed, criticized and copied. But for students it is difficult to learn how to compose such documents in unusual conditions, it is really complicated to depart from some standards or clichés.Unusual formulation of the problem - the drafting of an employment contract in this situation - encourages students to think and solve practical problems independently and gives the opportunity to develop professionally significant qualities, skills and abilities. The introduction of innovative technologies in the professional training of the future specialist is an indispensable element in the formation of the foundations of professionalism. The new approach to the teaching process is a prerequisite for modern higher education.
