“What are your greatest strengths and weaknesses?” Talk about a doozy of a question! For most of us, sharing our answer might be difficult with a trusted friend, let alone with someone we just met. Yet, it’s all but guaranteed that you’ll be faced with questions asking you to define your strengths and weaknesses during your next job interview.
Do you know how you’re going to respond?
All too often, job applicants turn to cliche’ and overused responses, trying to say what they think an interviewer wants to hear, rather than responding thoughtfully and honestly. In truth, identifying your strengths and weaknesses requires conscious self-reflection. It’s all about discovering and clearly communicating what you thrive in currently, what your greatest challenges are and what your plan for the future looks like.

In the latest episode, we discuss the best way to respond to job interview questions about strengths and weakness, strategies for getting prepared as a job seeker and some common pitfalls to avoid.
