What are your weaknesses?

Purpose:

To discover if you are wrong for the job as a result of lack of experience or training, poor people skills, refusal to follow orders, poor attitude laziness...

  • Honestly describe an obvious weakness, then describe factors that make up for it.
  • Remember, when you raise a doubt, explain it immediately. If you cannot think of any weaknesses, tell the employer this.
