Question 2 of 25

User-Submitted Answers

Helping my clients and having a bond with them.
2.
Seeing someone attempting reach their goals and obtaining them.
3.
Seeing the client or families once something has worked. I really enjoy keeping in touch and checking in with clients, students, and families I have worked with. When I get a thank you or a smile then I know I have done something right and at the end of the day it makes me feel like I have done my job to the best of my ability.
4.
Helping people discover their strengths and abilities and applying those in a an occupation. Also helping them obtain access to resources to help them reach their goals and aiding them in improving on necessary skills in order to obtain competitive employment.
5.
It's the joy of helping people.
6.
The greatest joy for me in this field is helping people achieve their dreams and goals of returning back to work.
7.
I love seeing people progress. The sense of achievement that not only myself, but also the injured worker feels when they are able to return to full, pre-injury duties is so special. I am a true believer in employment providing purpose for so many people, and being able to work towards re-instating that purpose after an unexpected incident is really enjoyable for me.
8.
I love working with vulnerable and high risk individuals, as I am able to build relations and give reassurance and encouragement throughout the rehabilitation process. Individuals who either get injured at work or outside of work generally did not see it coming and therefore desire for someone to come beside them to help instruct and give them hope in returning to work and their daily activities and life as quickly has possible. When guidance and reassurance is given by an individual who has an excellent relationship with them, hey feel confident in their capabilities and I believe that this in itself helps with the recovery process and returning to daily activities including work.
9.
Helping someone obtain employment and join the workforce. For example customer with soto syndrome.
10.
The opportunity to plant a seed in someone and watch them grow and recover.

I had to deal with a student that had behavioral problems. He was also diagnosed with severe depressions, ODD, and ADHD. I would have tracked and monitored are visits more to provide data and stats to the local AEA social worker and School Psychologist to create an intervention plan for the student.
4.
One pt had a hard time finding employment due to lack of experience so he began volunteering. During the time I worked with him, his family needed him tohelp more at home and discontinued the vocational process. I thought he had great potential and he was improving on interview skills and job skills and I wish I had more time to watch him obtain employment.
5.
I wish I could do so much for all my patients, and when I feel I dont have all the answers I seek outside resources or confer with my team.
6.
As I am entry level, I have not actually had my own clients or caseload. I don't think I have had enough experience to answer this question.
7.
When I worked in rehabilitation in BC, I worked with a client who came into the clinic for kinesiology 1x weekly, based on the severity of his injuries and him sometimes missing appointments I stressed the importance of him attending regularly and encouraged him to be attending 2x weekly as suggested by the physio and OT, rather then 1x weekly. Thinking back on the situation it may have been beneficial for him to see the psychologist even for just an itial assessment to see if she could observe any underlying issues behind his reservations with rehabilitation.
8.
I have not had the experience of working with patients on an individual basis yet.
9.
There was a patient who was making such great progress and then they quit coming back. Wish I could have offered more services and re-engaged them.

About Our Interview Questions

Our interview questions are created by writers, almost all of which, have a long history of recruiting and interviewing candidates. They do not necessarily have experience interviewing or working with companies, careers, or schools, in which they may write for on MockQuestions.com. We do, however, strive to match their background and expertise with the appropriate question sets found on our website.

Our careers, companies, industries, and schools may have duplicate interview questions and answers found elsewhere on our website. Specifically, our companies and our graduate school interviews. For these two, we use the industry in which we believe the company most well-represents and the graduate programs, as the basis for the interview questions and answers that generate for each company or school.

The intent of MockQuestions.com is for our users to build confidence for their job interview, by using our thousands of interview questions and answers as they practice and prepare for their interview. We believe, most of our visitors can become more likely to succeed in their job interview with hard-work and practice. We believe, the key to success is for our users to rehearse with our interview questions while using our answer examples as an idea generator for their own interview answers. We strongly want to discourage users from memorizing our answer examples. That is not the purpose of our website.
