TIPS TO PREPARE
TOP ANSWERS
Example #1
"My strengths include my strong attention to detail and also my honesty. I believe these skills will help me greatly in this role as I will be working to ensure that customers are happy and taken care of while keeping their best interests top of mind."
Example #2
"I believe that my greatest strengths are my natural ability to lead, encourage others, and see a project through to the end no matter how challenging. I am very resilient and will never give up. One example of my leadership skills was when I was the Captain of my basketball team in University. I encouraged the team even when we were exhausted, or knew that we were likely going to lose the game. These skills will help me as a manager as I uplift my team and encourage them to deliver their best every day."
Example #3
"Heavily creative minded, I am also a risk taker while also being strong in the area of analysis. While obtaining my marketing degree, I thrived when it came to taking case studies and making recommendations on failed marketing strategies. These skills will be beneficial in this junior content marketing role, and I look forward to making recommendations on your projects using my knowledge in current trends."
Example #4
"I am very tidy, I notice the small details and have a friendly disposition. These skills will help me succeed as a retail sales associate because I will always ensure the store looks great and that your customers receive a friendly greeting each time they enter your store."
Example #5
"I'm a driven person, and I thrive under pressure. I have taken over 18 credit hours in college while maintaining a 4.0. Beyond that, I am a firm communicator, something I've exhibited in my personal life. The ability to thrive in a time-sensitive situation, along with my comfort when speaking to strangers, will ensure that I succeed in this role."

Example #6
"Being highly organized is beneficial as a new teacher, but also I would like to mention my self-confidence and ability to command a room. I may be new to teaching; however, I am not new to giving presentations to large groups. My experience as a volunteer tutor will also benefit me in this role."
