    I’m interested to see your focus on job choice here, Kyle. Questions 3, 4, and 13 all relate to that. I wonder how much this will tie to literacy – whether explicitly or implicitly. I bet, too, that you might find some interesting points about literacy as your participant discusses the similarities/differences between the construction and architecture field. As we discussed yesterday, I’m glad you’ve included the question about his English background. I think that will lead to interesting information, but it’s also a great way of showing that you’ve paid attention to what he’s told you.
