TIPS TO PREPARE
TOP ANSWERS
Example #1
"Tell me your greatest weakness,"
Example #2
"One weakness that I am currently working on is my ability to delegate overflow work to others. I would rather stay late to complete a project than potentially inconvenience someone by asking for help. I know it seems silly to not ask for help, which is why I am consciously working on this. Last week I passed a few A/P entries to our junior clerk. She was appreciative of the fact that I trusted her to do a good job, which made me feel great in return. It's a work in progress, but I am getting there!"
Example #3
"Not raised in a highly technical generation, if I had to choose a weakness, I would say that my understanding of cloud-based software is something that may humor you. Initially, I thought that information was just 'out there.' Like a cloud! One of my more tech-savvy team players took the time to explain the concept to me, and I have a much better understanding now. It's much more secure than I initially thought and I am teaching myself to trust the cloud now fully!"
Example #4
"I am not a strong public speaker, and this is a weakness that I would like to improve. Because so much of my work is performed online, and behind a computer screen, I have not needed to develop my public speaking skills. I find myself watching Ted Talks and being a little bit envious of the skills these speakers have. I am currently looking into Toastmasters clubs in my area to help me develop this skill."
Example #5
"I am a perfectionist who has, in the past, slowed down my work a little bit. I should have been a merchandiser. You will never see a jean display so perfect! My current boss recently gave me the helpful feedback that there are some things I just need to move on from such as the perfect fold every time. I like my store to look tidy and neat, but I was going overboard. Now that I received the feedback, my perfectionism is very much under control."
Example #6
"I must admit that math is not my strong suit. I tried so hard in school but it just never quite came to me. Of course, I am fine with basic math concepts, but once you throw algebra or calculus in there, I am an absolute mess! I found a great YouTube channel that teaches these concepts, and I have had some fun with those recently. All in all, I am happy to be blessed with the gift of sales to offset my poor math skills!"
Example #7
"If I had to choose a weakness I would say that spontaneity is my biggest hurdle. As a teacher of young children, I love to be organized, ready for anything, and prepared with plan A, B, and C! The thought of throwing out a lesson plan and just going with the flow makes me panic a bit. I am working on incorporating more off-the-cuff lessons in my day and know that the more years of teaching experience I have, the easier this will come to me."
Example #8
"I find that one of my weaknesses is my ability to communicate with the rest of my team. I am an independent worker and I struggle to get used to having to report my work to others. However, I have been working on my communication skills in all aspects of my life and I feel that I will be a great team player in this job."
