The strengths and weaknesses questions are probably the most asked in the history of interviewing. However I am always surprised about how many people cannot answer these well, even when you can almost guarantee they will be asked at some stage of the interview process.
What are your strengths?
Pre-select three strengths before the interview, and make sure they are also in line with the type of job you are seeking! Don’t forget to be prepared to give actual examples of your strengths as well if you need to.
Typical strengths include attributes such as
· High attention to detail
· Enjoys working in a team environment
· Work well under pressure
· Able to work independently
· Passionate about the industry
What is your main weakness?
Share a genuine weakness you have, but then talk about how you are attempting to overcome this weakness. This highlights you as self aware and mature.
