Sounds like you have the same approach as the railroad....

On interview questions that go beyond history- do you know the SOAR technique for answering?

Them: Tell me about a time when you were able to engage in unusual methods of solving a problem.

SITUATION: I working with a group that counseled the parents of at-risk unemployed artichoke packers. There were 5 of us there in Alabama, and our nearest supervisor was in Portugal. So we were pretty much on our own.

OBSTACLE: We found that a large percentage of the parents spoke only Waloon, and had very limited English skills. None of us knew any Waloon, so our effectiveness was being very sharply limited.

ACTION: After some research, I was able to contact the International Brussel Sprout Growers Association, and explained our problem. They gave me contacts with some local members that were fluent in Waloon. With their help, we established a "Key Phrase" quick reference guide- things like "Do not beat your son with household appliances."

RESULTS: The participation in the program skyrocketed from 4 families a month to 47 families a week. We continued to work with our volunteer linguist and were able to translate about 80% of our material into written Waloon. At the end of the year we received our groups Golden Ho-Hah award for the greatest improvement in the organization.

Use ACTION words, and things that can be measured. You did not facilitate, you WROTE a program- or CREATED training materials, counseled evil doers, etc.

Now go knock em dead.
C3 I know you didn't mean to but you just described every social worker and psyche nurse/councilor I ever met(including my ex who was a psyche nurse). A massive amount of bullsh!t surrounded by a bunch of meaningless words. No offense to the OP it is just that my parents kept foster kids almost my entire life and I have found that about 25% of social workers actually are there to help, this segment burns out fast in the system. 25% are there because they think they are smarter than everyone else and should be telling them how to live their lives. The other 50 percent are there because they need to be in charge of people who are more screwed up than they are. This last is especially true of people in the psyche world.

Not my first rodeo......Man is trying to get a J-O-B, and if he is a fellow gun buff, likely to fall into the good 25%.

In the meanwhile, just remember the line from The Prospector by Robert Service-

"Perhaps I am stark crazy, but there’s none of you too sane;
It’s just a little matter of degree."

Yes you are right about that and I probably spoke out of turn. Sometimes (most of the time) I go off half cocked on this subject and in the divorce thread too! I meant no offense and I would not get in the way of someone getting a good job. And you are right about a gun guy being likely to fall into the good 25 %. I hope he can survive in the bureaucracy and wish him well.

Cinder you are right also and also a lucky gal or I should say trip is a very lucky guy. And C3 probably does know everything or at least almost every thing. Like I said this and the divorce thread are very sore subjects for me and I am just coming off of a conversation with my ex tonight that set me off and got me going on all of this. A little bit of beer didn't help either.

Again I am sorry if I offended anyone in this deal.
