Do you have any tips to help prepare for an upcoming social worker interview?

Are there common interview questions that come up again and again?

2. Know how to work with a family to develop a plan.

3. Be able to articulate what interviewilng skills are necessary when working with families we serve.

4. Know how to prioritize multiple tasks that include crisis, telephone msgs, immediates tasks assigned by your boss, personal dr appts, etc.

I am looking for employment in the Dallas area. I am experienced with social work models but the specialized areas like D/V and Mental Health are looking for LCSW's or want entry level LMSW's. I am in the middle, working toward getting the LCSW. Any suggestions with interview tips for jobs in these areas? Thanks, Josie

At age 52, I found interview process to be quite difficult with organized written questions that 3 staff SW's wrote your answers to..quite stressful!
Questions were varied from public service intervention to PS and I don't even rembr all of the questions.I'm ready to launce a consultant career as a result. Good Luck !
