Great Interview Questions: Common Interview Questions: Strength and Weaknesses Interview Question

Tackle The Question and Control the Game!

One of the most common questions that is asked and feared in some ways is, “What are your strengths and weakness?” or “What is one of your strengths and one weaknesses?” or some variation on that.

QUESTION: What are your strengths and weaknesses?

ANSWER:  My strengths are I have a good strong work ethic, I am not afraid to roll up  my shirt sleeves and make things happen,  a strong ability to prioritize and my easy going personality. My weakness is that I am a perfectionist and will tend to push the team to meet our goals.

Another thing prior to the interview is to create a list of 5-7 of the strengths from your resume that you have practiced presenting in a succinct manner. Practice with a peer or loved one. You want to make sure you do not run on with your answer.

Good luck,
