"When I work with clients that are having a hard time finding employment I encourage them to volunteer. Volunteering gets them out into the work force, keeps them active and gives them a purpose that I encourage them to find."
"The job market can be difficult and sometimes waiting 12 months is a reality. I would encourage the client to work on their skills and education while we were working to find them a job. Free classes, skills tests and online courses would not only keep them busy and increase their skill set but make them more marketable."
Finding work for a client can be a stressful situation. You'll want to relay to the interviewer that you always stay positive, provide encouragement and continue to meet with the client. Tell the interviewer a time this has happened and how you ended up securing employment of the client.

"Not off of my clients are on board with finding employment, and that's ok. When these clients are ready, they contact me so we can work together. In the meantime I center my efforts on the individuals that are ready to find work."
"I can't force anyone to get a job because then it would be my goal and not theirs. I would provide the tools and provide the support but would have to sit back and allow them to tell me when they are ready."
You've heard the phrase 'you can lead a horse to water but you can not make him drink.' This phrase rings true to you as a Vocational Rehabilitation Counselor. If you've worked with a client like this go ahead and talk about it. Be sure to stay up beat and explain how you helped the client find their motivation. You may have been upset and discouraged yourself at the time that your client didn't want to find work, if that was the case don't show your anger during the interview.
