Most interviews will
contain at least one question asking you to elaborate on your shortcomings and weaknesses.
- What are your three biggest weaknesses?
- Tell me about an area you need to improve on? Give examples.
- What would your former manager say you most need to improve
The thing you need to recognize is that these are basically
trick questions. You will not get points for honesty if you share your personal
shortcomings here. The way to answer these questions is to reply with something that
really isn't a weakness, like that you work too hard, or are too much of a perfectionist,
or you take on too many responsibilities and don't leave enough time for yourself.
As silly as it may be, this is an area where you will be rated more favorably by not being

come up with ideas for those difficult open-ended questions that are so tough to answer
when you're on the spot. Almost every interview will include some questions where you are
asked to describe yourself such as:
- How would you describe yourself as a person?
- How would your friends describe you?
- What are some of your best qualities?
- What three words would you use to describe yourself?
