What's Your Scene?

Out of the Scene

If you work "Out of the Scene," you would probably not have to interact with the public (customers).  However, you might be required to interact with co-workers on a regular basis (several times per day at least). You might work in an area by yourself, or you might work near other people.

If you answer "yes" to most of these questions, then you might consider looking for an "Out of the Scene" job:
  1. Would you prefer to work in a space by yourself?
  2. Would you prefer to work with only 1-2 people in a room?
  3. Would you prefer to have very limited (i.e. once or twice per hour) social contact with people?
  4. Would you rather work alone?
  5. Do you feel very anxious when you talk to new people?
