I'm interviewing for a crisis/suicide hotline volunteer position in a couple of weeks. I have no experience but I do have a degree in psychology and I have a keen interest in suicide so I know some facts, stats, etc. I'm usually horrible at interviewing but know I am better when I thoroughly prepared, so I know practice makes perfect and all that jazz. What kinds of questions do they ask? What would they like to hear? I know there is intense training involved so I doubt they would expect me to know what exactly to do in every situation beforehand.
