What are Your Weaknesses?
Job interviews are replete with trap doors that once you open one trap door, you have fallen out of favor with the job interviewer. The question, “What are your weaknesses” represents the consummate job interview trap door. Job interviewers dismiss the credentials of job candidates that answer this question with “I don’t have any weaknesses.” The strategy for answering this question involves selecting one, maybe two professional weaknesses and explaining how you have worked hard to change the weaknesses into professional strengths. Job interviewers appreciate candor, not contrived answers that they know are not true.
