This is a question I hope you would not ask me, because my answer to this is conterveral and will probably leave you feeling as if I am trying to add fluff or avoid the question. But I refuse to think or believe I have weakness because If I believed in that then I would remain weak? Instead I think of areas in my life in which I would like to see an improved result, so then I would put my focus and energy on what I want the outcome to be and strive for that outcome. If I miss what I want, I revise and try a different path until I receive my outcome and vision.

Taking a lesser seat to let either someone else lead and I have definitely improved upon taking criticism from another person who does something differently.

About Our Interview Questions

Our interview questions are created by writers, almost all of which, have a long history of recruiting and interviewing candidates. They do not necessarily have experience interviewing or working with companies, careers, or schools, in which they may write for on MockQuestions.com. We do, however, strive to match their background and expertise with the appropriate question sets found on our website.

Our careers, companies, industries, and schools may have duplicate interview questions and answers found elsewhere on our website. Specifically, our companies and our graduate school interviews. For these two, we use the industry in which we believe the company most well-represents and the graduate programs, as the basis for the interview questions and answers that generate for each company or school.

The intent of MockQuestions.com is for our users to build confidence for their job interview, by using our thousands of interview questions and answers as they practice and prepare for their interview. We believe, most of our visitors can become more likely to succeed in their job interview with hard-work and practice. We believe, the key to success is for our users to rehearse with our interview questions while using our answer examples as an idea generator for their own interview answers. We strongly want to discourage users from memorizing our answer examples. That is not the purpose of our website.
