JOB SEARCH TIP: Answering the “Weaknesses” Interview Question.

19 Jul

How do you answer the question “what are your weaknesses?”

Please don’t answer “I don’t have any”, because we all have them and that response will not go over well.

Two approaches:

  • talk about a weakness that you are aware of that either wouldn’t be a big problem in the job for which you are applying; or
  • a weakness you have learned how to manage. For example, I’m not very organized, but I’ve developed systems and techniques that help me stay organized.

Make sense?

What it comes to naming your weaknesses, tell your story and tell it well.

There are training videos on the web site of my faith community and a handout. This content is free:
