Ryan's Answer
"I am the first person in my family to graduate from college. Knowing that I have come this far setting an example for my younger siblings is a great feeling!"
2.
What honors have you received in your life?
The interviewer wants to learn more about who you are as a person and what you have accomplished. No honor is too small to mention. Take the opportunity to boast about yourself. Start off by sharing any professional recognition or awards you have received. You may include special opportunities you have received as well such as being a part of a start-up team. Next, mention any honors you received while in school that made a positive impact on your life. Simply share the honors you received, and explain why they were meaningful to you.

Ryan's Answer
"I have had a lot of fun receiving honors in my life and professional career so far! While receiving my education, I developed a reputation in the debate club and received many honors. I have been awarded certificates of honors for investigative casework done in criminal court work and have been recognized by communities for positive transition rates of previous serving criminals into the community."
3.
Tell me about your experience in your internship?
The interviewer wants to hear that you will talk about your internship positively. Begin by telling the interviewer 3-4 things that you really liked about your internship experience, and discuss how you feel your internship experience helped prepare you for the role you are interviewing for. Be sure to mention that you understand your internship cannot teach you everything, and you look forward to learning more as you begin your career.

Ryan's Answer
"While interning at ABC Facility, I worked with a Parole Officer who I consider to be a great mentor to this day. She taught me how to follow best practices in assessing the personal needs of adult offenders and in determining treatment plans in a way that I could not have learned in a book. This internship taught me how to work as a team member, share knowledge and skills, accept, adapt, offer and respond to coaching on performance and skill development needs."
4.
Do you have a specialized area?
Be open with the interviewer, and share if you have a specialized area that is already established. If you do not have a specialized area, that's okay too! Simply tell the interviewer that you do not have a specialized area. There is a possibility that you are hoping to specialize in a specific area at some point in your career. If that is the case, be sure to tell the interviewer. You may get a great interviewer who will ensure you get help being placed in this specialty, so be sure to share your hopes!

Ryan's Answer
"One of the areas of my work that I like to specialize in and want to continue to develop is the dynamics, impact, and effects of addiction. It is very rewarding to work through recovery with clients, victims, and families."
5.
Give me three examples of what would make you leave this job?
The interviewer wants to hear that you will stay with the agency for a long period of time and there are not any minor things that would result in you leaving the role. Think of significant deal breakers when it comes to employment.

Ryan's Answer
"When I commit to a role, I like to stay there as long as possible. It would take something that compromises my values to lead me to leave. Such as learning of a major ethical issue in operations that leadership was supporting. Life happens and I would consider a change if presented with a major family emergency that required my attention. Family always comes first. Lastly, perhaps if I knew that I wasn't making a difference. I want to look back on my life knowing that I spent my days well making a positive impact."
