Getting an Interview
Clinical Case Manager Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Children's Home + Aid.
Interview Details – I had one interview with the woman who would ultimately be my direct supervisor. I got a good vibe from the company via the receptionist and my interview started on time. After a quick tour of the building, recently renovated, we sat down t interview. My interview was probably 30 minutes at most and didn't include anything outside of the normal interview questions. I was a little nervous, as expected, and the person interviewing me was pretty stern but did laugh a little. Nothing out of the ordinary. Very professional.
Interview Question – all of the questions were expected. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – I was fresh out of grad school and happy to have an offer (my second one). Therefore, I did not negotiate. Please do! Or you will be stuck with that salary.

Clinical Case Manager Interview (Positive Experience)
I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Children's Home + Aid.
Interview Details – I found the opening online and applied. I got a call within a week and interviewed the following week with the supervisor and then again with the team and VP in about another week. The supervisor offered me the job the next Monday and I started 4 weeks later.
Interview Question – This is hard to recall because it's been quite a while. I remember being asked why I thought people lie (because we do come across people who want to seem different than they really are). I believe the interview questions have since been changed so this might not be helpful. Answer Question
