    Name one skill mentioned in our job posting, that you do not possess. How will you gain that skill?

      How to Answer

      The interviewers are asking for you to highlight one of your weaknesses related to the job requirements. There are many ways to ask about your greatest weakness; however, the interviewers at Facebook will likely have a unique way of asking this question. Before your interview, comb through the job posting and pick out a skill where you have room for improvement. Then, discuss what you could do to strengthen that particular skill.

      Rachelle's Answer

      "I have an intermediate level of experience with Linux, and I have the goal of becoming an expert level in the next couple of years. When I saw that knowledge of Linux is a requirement for this position, I knew that I met the standard requirements for the role; however, I always strive to be better than basic. For that reason, I have enrolled in an online course called 'Linux Essentials.' I am excited to strengthen my skills in this area and continue to improve my contribution to Facebook."

I look forward to learning more ways that this internship at Facebook will help me grow into a bright career within Production Engineering."

      "I see a list of software and coding languages - I do not have a mastery of all of them. But I would like to tackle them one by one. Or get better at something that I currently know. How would I gain that skill - if there are internal platforms for education and training, I would make the best use of them, otherwise, I will take on additional training courses."

      In the "Revised Answer" section, I have suggested a slightly revised response.

      "I see a list of software and coding languages listed in the job posting. While I do not have mastery of all of them, I am eager to enhance my own learning, and I plan to tackle each system and coding language one by one to ensure my mastery. I will seek peer and manager feedback and take on additional training courses as necessary."

      "Understanding the needs of the stakeholders is one skill that I definitely need to grow in. I can read more about security from a managerial perspective and that will help me understand the impact of each task better."

      Great response! You have clearly identified an area for growth, along with your plan for how to improve in that area.
