    Easy Interview

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Melwood (Nanjemoy, MD)


    Staff interviewed me for 2-week CIT program. Staff asked me various questions. They asked me about my experience; I told them all the things I'd done to get that job. I gave the staff all my best answers to the questions they were asking me. I was accepted, and I was excited at first, but as the time went by, I became more anxious about being away from home for 2 weeks. I was so homesick that I became depressed and went to the Doctor as soon as I got home to let people know I had depression from being away from home for 2 weeks.
