I have a job interview for a foster care case management position tomorrow. I'm really excited because I've just finished uni and this is exactly what I want to be doing. However, I've also never been to a social work job interview before- all my previous jobs have been in casual retail, food service and auditing. I really want to be prepared and do the best I can do so I need your collective help.
a) What kind of questions would they ask in a case management or social work job interview? I've googled it and I have a basic idea (http://lizrose.biz/socialworkworld/questions.htm) but any further information would be awesome. Will they ask me trick questions? Are there any key answers I should give?
b) Interview goes for 2.5 hours. I think it's a group interview but if it's a one on one, why will it take two hours? If it's a group social work interview, any ideas of how it will work? Group activities? Round circle? (Any advice welcome).
c) Any other miscellaneous job advice? When they ask me about my interests (if they do), should I just admit I'm a nerd whose hobbies include history, reading, science and the X-Files?
