    What are your strengths as a biological scientist?

      How to Answer

      Which personal strengths make you excellent at your job? Advantages can be skills or qualities that help you overcome difficult circumstances or accomplish challenging tasks.

      In a work context, your strengths will help you to complete your to-do list, understand client needs, and help you to apply what you have learned in your training. Talk to the interviewer about a couple of your strengths and why those will help you to be successful in this role.

      Stephanie's Answer

      Communication skills are critical in every industry, so it's wonderful that you've been able to leverage this skill set to improve your work. Since this question asks about your strengths as a scientist, I suggest including a technical strength, in addition to communication skills.
