"I think my strengths are in my perceptiveness and ability to be observant of the needs of others. These strengths are part of what makes me an excellent performer in a client facing role."
"I have developed many strengths in my career. One strength that consistently stands out are my strong technical skills. I am an expert user in Excel and SAP."

Sales answer example
"I think my greatest strengths are in my communication skills- both written and oral. I use these daily, obviously, in email pitching, phone call pitches or customer follow-ups, and then in person site visits."
Retail answer example
"My strongest skills that really help me daily are my people-skills, and the ability to close a sale without being pushy. I relate to the customer, get to know them and their needs, build a rapport, and am able to make solid recommendations that suit them. They buy, return, and repeat. And it is something I enjoy a lot- I love to see my regulars, hear about their lives, help them look and feel their best!"
Teacher answer example
"I think my passion and joy for teaching, and for students, are my strongest assets. I truly enjoy what I do every single day, and I know that is a blessing and gift that most people don't have. I consider it a strength- I recognized my calling to teach early on and I followed my gut."
Marketing answer example
"I believe my greatest strength lies in my analytical and creative mind. I feel I innately have an analytical mind and have worked to cultivate my creativity. I feel that understanding both sides of the business sets me apart in a unique way, as others tend to either be creative or analytical. In addition, I leverage my years in sales when I create marketing collateral in order to be the most effective."
