W: So, have you found a job yet?
M: No, but, I have a few leads, so things are looking up.
W: What kind of job are you looking for?
M: Actually, I want to work for a Web hosting company.
W: What would you do there exactly?
M: Well, I'd like to work in technical support, you know, helping customers resolve computer-related problems with their sites. And you know I'm a good communicator.
W: So, how's the pay for that sort of job?
M: Well, most people I know start out with a very reasonable salary; you can earn pay increases depending on your performance.
W: So, what about benefits?
M: Oh, the benefits are pretty good. They provide health insurance, two weeks of paid vacation a year, and opportunities for advancement.
W: Well, is there long-term job security in a job like that?
M: Uhh. That's hard to tell. I mean, the Internet is booming, and these kinds of companies are sprouting up everywhere, which is a good thing, but just like the dot-com era, you never know how long things will last.
W: Well, have you ever thought about going back to school to improve your job skills?
M: What are you suggesting?
W: You know, you did drop out of college.
M: I know, I know, but I don't know. I'm just seeing my current job at McDonalds as a step up. I don't have the resources at the moment to do that; however, the job I am looking at will pay for some classes after I have been with the company for six months.
W: Well, it looks like you have things planned out this time.
M: If I last that long.

19. In which field is the man desiring a job?
20. What's the future of the Internet industry according to the man?
21. What do we learn from the conversation about the man's educational background?
解析：四个选项都是关于He的学业状况，听时要留意。女士问男士“你有没有想过回学校？”后来还揭了男士的底：you did drop out of college。可见男士没读完大学，但中学毕业后也经受过一定的高等教育。所以B正确。
