How to express your strengths and weaknesses PART III.
Today, we will be sharing with you guys how to appropriately convey your weaknesses during interview.
When it comes to weaknesses, don’t just talk about them like you’re willing to talk about it for hours on end, but rather, talking about how to deal with them might be one way to impress your interviewer.
In other words, the point is to “talk about what you are trying to improve”
My weakness is you’re always worried,
There are tendencies wherein you may not be able to act until you feel relieved by doing research or checking it in advance so you can say that with whatever situation you’re in you always try to search it up or get advice from people so you can act on it or think about plan b as soon as possible.
“My weakness is being impatient, there are tendencies wherein I want to do things right away, and as a result you might keep on making mistakes. After giving it some thought, I have realized that one way to improve it is to avoid trying to do a lot of things at once as you’re not able to focus on one thing at a time.
Therefore, I decided to set up a schedule every morning. I try to think about what will take and how long it will take, and what is the highest priority before starting. That way, I have more time to think and less mistakes to make.”
Interviewers don’t just want to know about your weaknesses.
Through this question, they are actually checking whether the interviewee can see himself/herself objectively. If you can fully grasp your weaknesses on your own, and appropriately convey it to the interviewer then you will be one step closer to passing.
