What are your greatest weaknesses?

For job candidates, an interview can be a nervous situation.

You can’t know every question coming your way, but there are some that employers routinely ask that you can prepare for.

One tricky and intimidating example is being asked to identify your weaknesses.

While you might be expecting it, being asked about your weaknesses in an interview setting is always a drastic change of pace from discussing your abilities and qualifications.

Employers usually ask this to gauge self-awareness and to see how honest you can be about your abilities and willingness to grow.

It’s a true realization that everyone has flaws, but employers also want to know if you have a plan to improve them.

While it is about being honest, avoid discussing weaknesses that may disqualify you from a job. It’s wise to prepare and have a strategy of sorts.
