Self-Reflection

I would enjoy this job because I really like discovering and providing results. For example, if I was in the lab
analyzing a hair follicle to conclude who committed a crime, I would really enjoy being the one who found the
conclusion. Also, usually when people are working in a closed environment like this, they do not have much
human interaction, however, this job seems to provide a chance to work with others. The fact that they
conduct peer reviews on each other brought me to that conclusion.
