Let your genuine side show

A standard question all candidates hear at some point in the interview process is – “what is your biggest weakness?” We all have been taught to take the weakness question and turn it into a positive, but there is another way to score well in the interview with this question.

Here’s how:

– Just be honest and highlight a skill-set in your profession that you do not possess, but would enjoy learning and just haven’t been exposed to yet in your current and past work experience.

– Describe what you would do to develop knowledge and expertise in this new area and the path you would take to soon “own” this skill.

This will impress your hiring manager, set you aside from from the other candidates supplying the traditional answer of “I am a perfectionist”, and also show a high level of initiative and resourcefulness.
