    Two person panel who took turns asking questions and reading scenarios. Prepare to have "textbook" knowledge about relevant policies and legislation. For social work, they asked about values that you bring to the team and how you might deal with different perspectives/interdisciplinary practice situations. Also relevant is how to practice self-care in the midst of very difficult work. How do you take care of yourself and/or others?

    Initial telephone call from HR asking why I want to leave my current position, how much notice I need to give, salary expectations.
