Interview question: What is your greatest strength / greatest weakness?
Your greatest strength is something they need. Don’t choose something irrelevant to the job or the employer, like your skill in sudoku (unless that is a requirement for the job).
Focus on them: You have many strengths, but pick the one they need help with the most. Is it your expertise in a particular skill? Is it your ability to turn low-performing teams into high performers? Share something that makes them think they need to hire you…right now.”
I hate the “greatest weakness” question. Everyone knows it’s a trap, and everyone knows the candidate is going to say something trite (popular example: “I’m a perfectionist”). When you give a real answer, you are being genuine. You can include that you already have a plan to overcome this weakness through training or practice.
Some people even insert a little humor in their answer – “I wish I was better at tennis”. You can, too, if you feel like the interviewer has a sense of humor. But, be sure to quickly follow with a serious answer. Showing you have a lighter side is usually a good thing.
Okay let’s take a break from uploading the resumes today. Instead spend some time checking out the LinkedIn profiles of people already in your dream job. Also check out people who work for the company that you are interested in joining. Notice that their resume probably has some different jobs between college graduation and dream job.
I was one whose career path was "adventuresome". Graduated from college ready to teach English and Spanish… but I loved my marketing and other business classes. I discovered I enjoyed working with adults more than distracted students. From selling display newspaper advertisements, to working with insurance in healthcare, to finally recruiting and training employees in the HR field – a true mix of business and education. What a wonderful career I’ve had and you will too.
Give yourself a break from the job boards. Look up and smile. Continue to follow your dreams, but accept taking the trails along the way. It can be more satisfying in the long run than traveling that concrete highway.
Roses are red, violets are blue. Resumes are a hassle, let me make one for you!
