Waiting to hear back... - July 6th 2010, 11:00 AM

I had an interview on Friday at a place called New Heights. Its a social club for adults (18 and older) with psychiatric illnesses (like depression, anxiety, bipolar, schizophrenia). The position is for an activity counselor- so you run groups (like therapy- bipolar groups, depression groups....as well as more casual groups like art, music, computer). You also organize activities to do out in the community- like to go to walmart, target, or the mall to go shopping, to to a park, go to the YMCA to work out, volunteer some place....things to get the adults integrated into the community because the young adults (18-32) are almost all homeless.

I want this job more than I can explain. I am a social work major and have a passion for working with the homeless and this is a step in the right direction. Im so nervous about if I will get a call back! I hope I do. I hope that I would be good at this job too- Ive never run any therapy groups. AH- crossing my fingers haha.

Oh that sounds great. When I read the second sentence to start off with I thought it meant like a social club for drinking and was a bit like "Ummm I'm sure that's not really recommended" haha I'm quite dense sometimes

But yeah I'd really enjoy that too so I've got my fingers crossed for you that you'll get the job!

I hope you get the job, as it sounds like you are well-suited for it; however even if you do not could you like volunteer as that could still be helpful to your major.

Another plus if you do not get the job but start volunteering you can get your foot in the door and then the next time a paying position is open you could get promoted.

I hope the second interview goes well! Just act confident even if you are falling apart inside because they will never know how you feel inside. They must have thought you were good to have invited you for the second interview Let us know how you get on.

Thank you everyone for the support! I am a little nervous about the interview because its a group one and everyone is going to be looking at me and I suffer from social anxiety. But I have been talking to my mom and boyfriend and now that I have all the support on here I feel SO much calmer! Ill let you all know how it goes!

Breathe. Try and stay calm. I always try and big myself up before an interview so that I walk in feeling like I'll own it and it seems to help, otherwise my confidence just drops to the floor.

Re: Waiting to hear back... - July 12th 2010, 08:34 PM

Ah I did it! I dont know how but I did it! It was so scary to go into the interview. It was a group interview and it was at a community meeting at the social club. And there were at least 12 people there! They all asked a LOT of questions. It lasted like 20 minutes which felt like a lifetime to me! I was so nervous but they liked me! At the end of the meeting a bunch of the people were like "yeah hire her" "I like her. She should work here"- it totally boosted my confidence. Also they all told me how brave I was for being able to do the group interview which makes me feel great because I know a year ago I wouldnt have been able to do the interview due to my anxiety. So Im feeling great! I should find out if I got the job in a few days and I cant wait! I hope I get it so bad!!!
