How To Address Your Weaknesses In A Job Interview

on Fri, 06/06/2014 - 10:12

 

 Everyone has weaknesses, but talking about them can be difficult — especially in a job interview. That being said, it's common for        hiring managers to ask some challenging questions that force you to expand upon a wide range of professional attributes, and these  could include inquiries about your weaknesses. 

Here's how you can handle these kinds of questions: 

 Be honest about your weaknesses - "The best answer to the question is when you tell a truthful answer, because it's very unlikely [you] will be hired for the thing you are most weak at doing," said career coach Penelope     Trunk, as noted by Forbes. "For example, someone who is a production artist could say his weakness is finance. So what if he doesn't like finance? He is not getting hired to do it." 

Focus on how you overcame a weakness - Life is all about conquering difficult situations, and hiring managers want to know that you can do this before bringing you into their company. By talking about how you turned a weakness into a strength, you have the opportunity to show the person you're talking to that you can grow and learn. 

Pick a work-related weakness - Bringing your personal life into an interview is generally frowned upon, so make sure you have a professionally appropriate example to share. Think about it ahead of time so you're not caught off guard during the meeting. 

An interview is one of the most important parts of the job search process, and despite what you may think: you can never to be too prepared. To make sure you're ready for every step of the process, consider working with a recruiter who not only takes the time to understand your strengths, but also your weaknesses and can help you leverage your best assets.

The main problem that I usually suffer when attending an interview is the question about my weakness. My weak point is trusting everyone and I was afraid of telling the truth. After reading this, I understand how we can handle such questions without any difficulty.private louvre museum tour

Paragraf Generalisasi yang bentuknya loncatan induktif adalah paragraf yang tetap bertolak dari beberapa fakta namun fakta yang ada belum bisa mencerminkan seluruh fenomena yang terjadi.

Interviewers are trained to interview an individual. They know how to evaluate a person if he/she is fit in that job. They also know how to find any weaknesses. where to buy soundcloud plays

You can also tell your strengths as your weakness such as when you start to do something you don't know when to stop.
