Firstly, choose the main factor from those outlined above, for example, relevance to future career is seen as particularly important. You might want to work as human resource manager and consider making human resource management as your area. Obviously, you need to narrow down as much as you can. For instance: 

      Human resource management where? public services in UK

      Which public service? the NHS;

      Which part of NHS? acute hospitals

Your efforts should be designed to move you from area in very general terms to defining it much more narrowly
