Question 20 of 26
What is your greatest weakness, and what are you doing to improve it?
User-Submitted Answers
1.
I would like to learn more about electrical engineering and I am currently studying this subject by reading books on it.
2.
My greatest weakness is that I care too much about my job.
3.
Experience and I am employed elsewhere to gain that experience.
4.
My greatest weakness is definitely a lack of experience on digital desks, particularly high end consoles that I've not had the chance to work on. I've begun to do some work on lower end desks (behringer x32, mackie tt24) and have attended a training course on yamaha CL/QL consoles in order to get some hands on experience.
5.
I had problem motivating myself to do boring parts of my jobs. Then I realized that even in the most boring tasks I can find challenge by trying not only to complete such tasks, but do more than it was expected from me.
6.
My Great weekness is Guitar! I love guitar. I am passionate about it. I spend half a day practicing it and you guys can see it in my 12 result.

I am a problem solver with a "Can Do" attitude. I am confident in my abilities and am qualified to handle any sound tech job where I can satisfy both the client and the audience.

8.
My greatest weakness is that I often live and think in the future tense. It makes it hard sometimes to focus on the present when I dream so often. To improve this, I have been evaluating myself in the present, and using the skills I know I have to get the right job, which will allow me to work, improve, and then do what I need to do to succeed.
9.
My weakness is I want to make sure everything is perfect by doing it myself. Learning to ask for assistance to get the job done.
10.
I can have a tendency to get distracted easily. This mostly applies to times I'm off the clock, but it does happen. When I know there is something I need to do, or if I have a specific thing that needs to get done, I can focus on that and get it done the right way. I try to push myself; I accept as many work opportunities as I can. Because, at the very least, I'll leave the situation knowing a little bit more.

I've mainly worked on budget analogue gear, beat up old Mackie desks alongside Behringer/DBX outboard are the norm for me.

I worked a recording session with a ska band called Root System. They'd previously had very bad luck in the studio, but as I'd worked with them at several gigs I knew they were a tight live band, so I suggested recreating that and recording the band live in the studio.
