    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Volunteers of America.

    Interview Details

    There was one interview and the program manager was present, along with a case manager and a client. Each took turns asking questions from the same sheet of questions. The questions were thought provoking. Some asked things like, what does advocacy mean to you? Have you been on a coalition? And others asked you to describe how you would respond to different scenarios. Some of the scenarios include a youth tells you they are pregnant. Another is that a youth tells you that they think they might be gay. How would you respond?

    Interview Questions
    • I think that the most difficult questions were the ones that ask you how you would respond to various scenarios.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    I was unable to negotiate the pay. Volunteers of America is a non-profit and so they are limited on what they are able to pay their employees. You really have to be passionate about working with the demographic, and not money motivated.
