Today we’ll further narrow down the areas in which you’d like to work. For example, do you like to work alone, or do you prefer working on a team? Is it important for you to interact with customers, or do you prefer to work in the background? The following table will help you answer these questions.

Now here is your task:

Go through the table from left to right and look for one or two terms in each column you like most. This will result in the following work areas, for example:
