  • Hello there, my name is Richard McMunn from the interview training company PassMyInterview.com,

  • and in this tutorial, I will teach you how to pass a social worker interview. So, if

  • you do have a social worker interview coming up with any organization from around the world,

  • I promise you these seven interview questions and answers will make a big difference to

  • your preparation. Before I get into the tutorial, a very warm welcome to this social worker

  • interview training video. My name is Richard McMunn. That's me there in the center. I've

  • been helping people for 20 years now to pass their interviews. And I do that by giving

  • you unique, top scoring answers you can't find it anywhere else. Please do support the

  • channel by subscribing. You can click the red button below the video, and then you won't

  • miss out on any of the weekly training videos I'm uploading. And I would also very much

  • appreciate it if you gave the video a like. Thank you very much! That always motivates

  • me to create more content for you. Let's get into those seven social worker interview questions

  • and answers. The first interview question is going to be, tell me about yourself? Now,

  • when we respond to this social worker interview question, we have to make sure that we align

  • our skills, qualities and experience to the essential criteria of the social worker role.

  • How do we do that? Here is my suggested answer. “Thank you for inviting me to be interviewed

  • today. I am a passionate, hard-working, honest and professional social worker who has the

  • necessary skills, qualities and experience to perform to the standards you would expect

  • within this role. I am an excellent communicator and listener; I am able to utilize critical

  • thinking skills to achieve my objectives; I always ensure I follow my training and the

  • necessary rules, procedures and legal requirements surrounding social work. I am also someone

  • who sets appropriate boundaries whilst building relationships with my clients and those I

  • am working with. I am highly-organized, tolerant and will show the correct level of empathy

  • when the situation requires it. I really enjoy my work as a social worker, and I feel if

  • you employ me within the position, you will be happy with my loyalty, my values and also

  • my strong work ethics.” That's a very strong answer. It's quite in-depth, but I've made

  • it in-depth deliberately because remember, you're competing against other people. You

  • want the job; therefore, you want to load your response with positive keywords and phrases

  • that will resonate in a positive manner with the interviewer. Now, you can either pause

  • the video and write down these answers, all the elements that you think you would like

  • to use, or if you want to stick around, I will tell you where you can download my full

  • set of social worker interview questions and answers as we progress. The second question

  • of your social worker interview is, why do you want to be a social worker? Now, you and

  • I know that this is a challenging role. It is highly rewarding. The pay is not that fantastic,

  • but it requires a unique set of skills. So we want to give them a genuine answer that

  • explains the real reasons why you want to be a social worker. Here is my suggested answer

  • to this interview question. “Being a social worker comes with a huge amount of responsibility.

  • I am someone who naturally prefers to work in a challenging role where I genuinely get

  • to make a difference to people’s lives. You don’t become a social worker for the

  • financial reward, and on that basis, there has to be a passion, a commitment and a dedication

  • to social work for it to be an attractive career. I want to be a social worker because

  • I have all of the necessary attributes and I feel I can really make a positive difference

  • to not only the people I am working with, but also your department and the wider social

  • work team. Over the years, I have worked hard to gain competence in the role, to build the

  • right level of knowledge and experience, and to also ensure I am up to the challenge that

  • lies ahead.” That gives very specific reasons why you want to become a social worker. Question

  • number three of your social worker interview. What do you expect to be doing on a day-to-day

  • basis as a social worker? Before you go to your social worker interview, it's very important

  • that you read the job description, because that will outline the key responsibilities

  • that you will need to undertake within the role. If you can’t answer this question,

  • then how do you know you can perform it to the right level and the right abilities? Here

  • is my suggested answer to the interview question, what do you expect to be doing on a day-to-day

  • basis as a social worker? “I expect my duties to be many and varied, including carrying

  • out interviews and attending meetings with clients and families to assess their situation

  • and their needs. The interviews and meetings will, on occasions, be in collaboration with

  • other interested stakeholders and agencies. It will be important for me to follow protocol

  • and to utilize the appropriate risk assessment when creating my reports. I will need to meet

  • with, and liaise with, external and internal agencies in my capacity as a social worker,

  • and I see combined, collaborative working a very much integral part of my rolethe

  • sharing of information, where appropriate, will be vital. I will be responsible for making

  • the necessary recommendations in the best interests of the family and individuals, and

  • I will need to keep up-to-date and accurate records at all times. I will, at times, need

  • to refer families and individuals to other agencies in order to provide them with the

  • correct level of information or support. I will also need to prepare accurate records

  • and documents for both legal proceedings, and for when also giving evidence in court.

  • Finally, I will be responsible or my own professional development and will need to participate in

  • ongoing training and development courses to ensure I carry out my duties as a social worker

  • to the highest standards possible.” Now, that is a very, very in-depth answer. And

  • I would suggest, during your social worker interview, probably the most in-depth answer

  • that you would give. On a day-to-day basis, you would have to do a huge amount of different

  • tasks, manage your caseload, you need to multitask and also deal with loads of different situations!

  • So there is a lot of work involved as a social worker. My view is that social workers don't

  • get enough credit for the great work that they do. It's a difficult and challenging

  • role and sometimes they don't get the praise, as I say, that they actually genuinely deserve.

  • Next question of your social worker interview, what skills and qualities do you have to enable

  • you to do the job of a social worker? This is assessing whether you understand the relevant

  • skills and qualities required to be competent in the role. Here is my suggested answer.

  • “I am, first and foremost, a strong communicator and listener. These skills are vital in the

  • role of a social worker, and I have the experience to deal with a variety of situations when

  • needed. I also feel I have a good level of emotional intelligence. What I mean by this

  • is, I am self-aware and I understand and recognize my own strengths, my limitations, my emotions

  • and also my actions. I also have the ability to self-regulate; I am self-motivated and

  • I possess the appropriate social skills to deal with all types of situations I will likely

  • encounter as a social worker. I am highly organized, professional, and I am aware of

  • the boundaries I must set within my work whilst dealing with individuals, clients and families.

  • Finally, I will always carry out my duties in strictest of confidence and will demonstrate

  • empathy as and when a situation requires me to do so.” Basically, I’ve gone through

  • all of the very important skills and qualities you need to perform the role of a social worker

  • professionally, and I've put them within the answer for you. Don't forget to SUBSCRIBE

  • you want to. If you have a look in the description below the video, I put my LinkedIn.com link

  • within the description, so you can connect and say hello if you want to. Next question

  • of your social worker interview. How would you handle an upset or confused individual

  • or member of a family whom you are working with as a social worker? This assesses your

  • ability to handle people's emotions and also control your own emotions and set important

  • boundaries. Here is my suggested answer. “In this type of scenario, I would use effective

  • listening skills, ask appropriate questions and communicate in a manner that was conducive

  • to good social work. I would assess their situation by listening to what they had to

  • say, draw from other information that might be available through other agencies or organizations,

  • and then make recommendations based on the assessment I would have conducted. I would

  • most certainly demonstrate empathy when the situation required it, but I would always

  • ensure the appropriate boundaries were put in place from the outset. Above all, I would

  • adhere to my training and the protocols I would be required to follow in order to reach

  • a successful outcome for the individual or family member.” Next question of your social

  • worker interview. Tell me about a time where you had to deal with conflict? So, tell me

  • about a time where you had to deal with conflict. Now, what I'm going to do here is actually

  • break down the answer using situation, task, action and result. What that means is, when

  • you are structuring your answer to these kind of behavioral interview questions, you are

  • telling them the SITUATION you in. Then the TASK that needed to be done; the ACTION you

  • undertook, and then the RESULTS following your actions. It is a brilliant method for

  • giving top scoring answers! Here is my suggested answer using the star technique for, tell

  • me about a time where you had to deal with conflict? I was working in a previous job

  • attending an important multi-agency meeting when one of the meeting members insisted on

  • being confrontational and obstructive during the meeting. Nobody, including the chairperson

  • of the meeting, appeared to be dealing with his disruptive behavior, and so I felt that

  • I needed to take responsibility to resolve the situation for the sake of the meeting

  • and our combined goals. When the opportunity arose, I challenged him in a calm manner by

  • asking whether it would be possible for us all to concentrate on the objectives of the

  • meeting. I said that I personally felt some of his contributions were not helpful. I explained

  • that we didn’t have much time to agree the meeting outcomes, and that I felt his vast

  • experience could actually be used positively to help us all achieve our goals. By challenging

  • him calmly and professionally, and by asking him to contribute his experience to the meeting

  • goals, I was able to win him around and his tone and attitude changed completely. I believe

  • I have the experience to deal with conflict when it arises and will always act with professionalism

  • in these types of situations with a view to achieving my desired objectives.” Now, that

  • is a strong, concise and positive answer that shows that you've got a certain situation,

  • which is a problem, but you then go through the task of sorting it out to achieve your

  • outcome, and you are calm and professional at all times, which is what you'd be required

  • to do as a social worker. Next question that is guaranteed to come up during your social

  • worker interview. What's your biggest weakness? We don't want to give them a weakness that

  • could hinder your chances of passing the social worker interview. This is a great answer to

  • this question, which is actually it turns it into a positive thing. “I feel my main

  • weakness, at times, is that I find it difficult to strike and maintain a healthy work-life

  • balance. As social workers, we obviously do our work because we love it, and we are very

  • passion about it. Therefore, it’s very easy to forget how long youve been working on

  • the cases that fall under your remit, and before you know it, it’s late into the evening.

  • Whilst I will always find social work satisfying, and I will put in the hours needed, I am learning

  • to strike a healthier work-life balance whilst still getting everything done and maintaining

  • the absolute highest of standards.” That's a great answer, because as you and I know,

  • if we're working long into the night, that's not good. It is a weakness if you can't manage

  • your workload, because you will have to put in a lot of hours as a social worker. But

  • that is saying that you find it hard to strike a healthy work life balance, which is really

  • important in any kind of job, but you are doing something about it. A great answer.

  • And it's also safe. It's not going to harm your chances of passing your interview. Now,

  • if you'd like my full set of 20 Great Answers to Social Worker Interview Questions, there's
