“What are your weaknesses?”
Nothing says fun like talking about your weaknesses during a job interview, amirite? Nobody wants to spend precious time during their interview talking about something negative, as doing so can make you feel vulnerable and uncomfortable.
Of course, Hiring Managers aren’t asking you this question because they want to see you sweat, they are asking because they want to make sure that you are self-aware enough to recognize that you have weaknesses, and that you took action to actually fix the issue. When you look at the question in this way, you can begin to see how this question is not to be feared, but instead embraced. In truth, the dreaded “weakness” question actually has the biggest upside of any question you’ll be asked during your interview.
