Just be honest, that's "all" they are looking for. This is not the job for a person who does not like children or who does not have a compassionate heart. You "are" there to protect the child and Mentor the child. so long as you care.. you will do well because they "will" train you and if you have no experience they will hire you in the Central Services Unite for a year and promote you.

To get an interview all one needs is to have worker 1 year in CPS at the county level or have a 2 year degree in pretty much anything. They are not picky and turn over has been tremendous in the past 4 years. At the interview they make sure you don't openly use drugs or have a lengthy criminal record. They ask simple questions on what you would say/respond to evaluating children's safety.
