When you are asked “What are your weaknesses?” in an interview

Everyone has weaknesses, whether if they personal or professional and most candidates understandably despise this question and consider it pointless.

After all, they aren’t about to confess candidly to their most significant flaws in the middle of a job interview. Weaknesses we are referring too are the flaws that as an employee, you have or have demonstrated at work. It could be that you find it hard to communicate with customers, or that you always arrive late to client meetings.

When the employer asks this question, they are trying to find out what they are up for if they decide to hire you, so there are no surprises.

Whatever your weakness is that you have identified, it is always a good idea to mention what it is that you are doing about it.

So, you will be starting with a negative; however, always make sure you end it with a positive by saying how you are solving the weakness.
