So you updated your resume, filled out applications, and finally got a call to interview for your dream job- how exciting! We all want to put our best foot forward at the job interview. Yet, we are often asked that dreaded 'Weaknesses' question where we are meant to disclose our faults. Now there's only one thing left to do- prepare for it! It is absolutely crucial to prepare accordingly for the job that you want; it not only increases your professionalism points but gives employers a good impression of you. If we are asked to share our faults, how can we present them in a positive light? Should we even do that? Should we pick something inconsequential or something irrelevant to the work environment? Should we be doing something else?
Some Explaining points on how to best discuss your faults at the job interview given below:
• Acknowledge Your Faults:
Your fault might be as simple as being a Perfectionist or Forthright or even Guarded. Others may have told you that you are "Too Sensitive" or "Too Unfeeling". You may have the fault of being a "People Person" or a "Loner". Your faults may also lie with having a Personality or Mental Health Concern. Your faults may lie in Time or Project Management. The best thing you can do is to Openly and Honestly acknowledge your faults. Interviewers ask this question to get a sense of your level of Self-Awareness as well as how well you will get along with existing staff.
• Recognize the Conditions Under that Becomes a Fault:
Your faults may become a strength in different tasks or environments. Similarly, attributes that you normally consider to be a strength may be considered a fault in a different task or environment. So, being a Night Owl, for instance, this may be a problem if you work a typical Monday to Friday from 9.00 a.m. to 5.00 p.m. However, if you do evening work, then your Night-Owl nature may become a strength. Your all the bad habits which affect your routine something whole day, that may become the strength when it comes to working for a company.
• What You Are Already Doing:
You can also speak to how you are placing yourself in environments where your faults become a strength. If you have always gotten in trouble at school for being a chatterbox, for instance, you could talk about choosing a profession or role where chatting becomes a virtue. Once you have shared your faults, you will need to continue by sharing the steps you have/are taking to address those same faults.
• Handling Sensitive Faults:
If your faults lie in a personality or mental health concern, those faults are likely to be very personal and very sensitive. You might simply say "I have a problem with a mental health problem". You might then go on to say that you are currently seeing (or have seen) a psychologist to get some strategies to manage it. At the end of the day, you can speak openly and honestly about your faults, while simultaneously showcasing who you are and what you can do for a potential employer.
