I recently got hired as a youth counselor and went through two interviews to get it and the one question that kept coming up was on an opposite scale with one end of it being nurturing and the other end being strict where do you see yourself being on that scale as you work with youth? Correct answer: find a balance- 40/60, 60/40 no more and no less.
Also, when they ask why would be you be a good candidate for this position? Include having a positive outlook, positive attitude, etc.
-That is highly needed in a residential treatment facility especially if some days prove to be extremely challenging. The residents need it.
