Is it a CO postion or Correctional Counselor? I've been interviewd for both positions. They were both panel interviews and the CO interview was tough from what I remember, it's a tough job so they have to be rough on the interview.
Dont worry about it they are so desperate for people, if you can spell your name you will get the job. Think hard and talk to others to see if this is what you really want to do. I worked for the DOC for 3 years and was pretty miserable there so I left it, its not necessarily the job thats bad its the dirt bags that you WORK with and Im not talking about the inmates.
Had the interview, in my opinon it was a pretty easy interview. Asked a lot of basic questions and they also wanted to see how I could handle myself in certain situations. Now i just wait see if I go for PT test.
Being a long distance runner for some years know it may be hard to take but probably then only thing to do right know is rest. But, you could try to ice before and after you run. if you have any friends or know anyone who is an athletic trainer you could ask them what to do. When I was in college the use to tape me when I had problems with shin splints in addition to the icing part. Hope that helps you out.
I too have the same problem with shin splints. The worst thing you can do is run everyday. Even if you run every other day, your shins are just going to sustain more and more damage to them. For one, you do need to ice your shins. Wear well cushioned sneakers when your not on duty, even around the house. Your shins are beat to hell right now and you need to take as much stress off of them as possible. If your run is this coming Tuesday, do not do anymore running until your test! Most people think more is better but if you run anymore, you will probably not make it more than 3 times around the track. If you want to fit in more cardio before the test, ride the bike! Also, you will need to stretch your hamstings and calves everyday until the test. If you can stay off your feet until this Tuesday, even better. Good luck!
