Mini Cooper - small, sporty, but practical. It was a stupid answer haha.
A Prius. I use resources efficiently during idle time. And, I have reliable energy reserved for when it is really needed. I may need gas on occasion, but I can always be counted on to be recharged and operational in a pinch.
My life experience has given me not only the desire but the patience and understanding to pursue helping others. This job would be one of my first step towards pursing career as a professional social worker, but it would not be my first time reaching back when others reach out to me. This job would give me the chance to take something that is important to me and take it to the next level.
I’ve always had a heart for helping others, since a little girl I was raised to care about others, especially people who need a little extra help than others. This field of healthcare has always been what I gravitated towards. I love the clients/residents and their families, their families become your families even though the pay isn’t that great most times, the lives I get to impact is the best reward in the end.
There were certain questions I was not prepared for and did not know how to answer. One of which being "Have you ever worked with someone who worked differently than you and how did you handle it?" and "Have you ever had a conflict with a supervisor and how did you handle it?"
I just said it was good to compromise and to be upfront with questions and concerns as professionally as possible. And to always have the mindset that you are there for the individuals and not to let personal conflicts interfere with your work ethic.
Basically say how you would try to get the client involved into the conversation, without causing a scene. EX: "Well I'll have the chicken fingers. Billy, can you tell the waitress what you want?"
I'd act humorously confused at the question to not offend her and demonstrate socially responsible behavior, and then I'd make the situation more relaxed by starting up a casual conversation with the person I am eating with. I would say something like "Man Billy, what do you want?? Last time we were here I think you talked about that dinner for weeks." If the person needed communication supports, then I would teach the waitress how to interact with a repeat customer by demonstrating how Billy and I communicate to each other.
If a child is upset about the way another staff treated them and that other staff was in the wrong in your opinion, how do you react to the child? Do you talk to your coworker about it or go to the boss about the situation?
You need to know not only what to say to that client to make them feel validated while not attacking your coworker, as well as know the proper way of talking to your coworker but not let it get covered up.
