I know my strengths, but how do I answer questions about my weaknesses?


It is likely that you will be asked to list up to three of your weaknesses in a job interview. While some experts recommend listing a non-weakness - like getting to work to early or being a perfectionist - it shows more thought and self-awareness to offer something legitimate and explain how you are improving it.

Think back to a recent job evaluation for inspiration. If you had a hard time managing someone or if a project didn't turn out the way you hoped, you explain how you would do things differently next time to show that you are learning from your past experiences.
