    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Vancouver Coastal Health (Vancouver, BC (Canada)) in February 2014.

    Interview

    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? The focus was on the practice scenarios which can vary depending on your site.
