    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at TW Ponessa & Associates Counseling Services (Carlisle, PA).

    Interview

    Very easy! I Arrived and the office coordinator sat me down. The interviewer had a check list of very basic questions that anyone who studied psychology or counceling or related should be able to answer. Also she had me fill out some papers that asked me about salary expectations and such. Some questions about my resume that since it was my resume I was able to answer. Was very easy and I left very confident.

    Interview Questions

    • mainly questions about ethics and privacy. For instance if a client asked to meet you at a coffee shop to socialize what would you do? why would that be inappropriate...etc
      Also questions about my strength's and weaknesses and my ability to be organized and complete paperwork (there is a lot of paperwork on this job) and finally a question about my long-term goals. the whole process took 30 minutes.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at TW Ponessa & Associates Counseling Services (Exton, PA) in May 2016.

    Interview

    I applied on ZipRecruiter and heard back within a week. This was certainly not the same result when applying on simplyhired and indeed at other companies for therapy. I was so excited to apply in my residential area. When I heard back it was through e-mail, followed by an offer to have an interview in-person with notice that I would be hearing back in a couple days of my offer. It was a smooth process and well-worth applying all of my knowledge and credentials for. The coordinator was interpersonal and genuine. I appreciated that since my nerves were getting the best of me.

    Negotiation

    When offered I was given the opportunity to negotiate. The coordinator did not play hardball and was honest about the offer. It was a genuine conversation. The offer showed value for me. I appreciated that.

On the day of, I had difficulty finding the building and a place to park, and I had to wait more than thirty minutes to be seen. I was not expecting the questions that were asked of me, and despite being an entry level position with a minimum requirement of a Bachelor's degree in a related field, the focus of the questions was on related experience, of which I had none. I felt very uncomfortable throughout the interview and when I left I figured I wasted my time and wouldn't get it. The next day I got a call with the offer.
