32. When you go to a job interview, you often bring a list of all the successful things you've done to that point called a resume. What would go on your job resume right now? Do you think a potential employer would be impressed with your resume? Why or why not?

33. Imagine that you could create a job for yourself out of thin air. Someone would pay you to do exactly what you want to do for the rest of your life. What would you be doing at this job and why would you choose to do that?

34. While many full-time jobs now come with paid vacation and health insurance coverage, in the past employers gave workers little-to-no benefits other than a pay check.
