  1. 1.

    What is your greatest weakness?

      How to Answer

      Pick a weakness that is not a core skill for this position. You can be candid in your answer; recognizing that you aren't great at something and acknowledging your need to improve. Be sure to have an action plan in place for improving on this weakness.

      Perhaps you are watching TED talks to gain skills in a particular area, reading the latest-and-greatest book on the subject, or maybe you are taking a seminar at a nearby community center. We are all human with our weaknesses, so don't be afraid to share yours!

      Rachelle's Answer

      "I believe I could improve on some technical skills including Excel and PowerPoint. Currently I am at a beginner to intermediate level; however, I would be more comfortable at an advanced level. I have enrolled myself in an evening/weekend workshop for the next six weeks. We will see how stellar my skills are after that course!"

      Rachelle's Answer

      "This is super cliche, but it's also true. I am not good at delegating to others. When I become submerged in a project, I don't like to give away any of the control. While this can be good, it can also definitely inhibit the outcome of the project and my growth as a team player and individual.
      I am currently working on this, as I know it is a deficit."

      "Chocolates! Just kidding. public speaking. It is something that I've been working on a lot. I don't really enjoy talking in front of a large crowd but I am comfortable in a smaller group of people. I always practice talking to different kinds of people to improve myself."

      Haha, I like when candidates show personality like this in an interview! Great answer, I like how you expand on what you've been doing to improve your skill set.

      "My greatest weakness is that I can give too many details in trying to tell what needs to be said honestly."

      Rachelle's Answer

      If I understand correctly, you are working on brevity in your communication? I recommend adding in a bit about what you are doing to improve on this weakness.

      "My greatest weakness is not delegating tasks. I am working on this and know that it’s ok and there are not enough hours in the day to get everything done. It doesn’t hurt to ask for help when needed."

      Lauren's Answer

      Great, honest answer. I included your desire to become more aware of this weakness.

      "My greatest weakness is not delegating tasks. There are times when I become fully immersed in my projects, that I do not take a step back and delegate portions of the work. I am working on heightening my awareness of this weakness, however. It does not hurt to ask for help when needed."
