Warm-Up Interview Questions :
What is Your Greatest Strength?
This is one of the easier interview questions you'll he asked. When you are asked
questions about your strengths, it's important to discuss attributes that will qualify you for the job. The best way to respond is to describe the skills and experience that directly correlate with the job you are applying for. This is a great chance to highlight your best skills. Don’t pick just one. Focus on your top three or four. Some examples are…leadership skills, team-building skills and organizational skills. Determine which strengths would fit best with the position for which you are applying. For example, if the job announcement stresses the ability to handle multiple tasks, you could say….I am good at organizational skills, prioritisation and time management. But my greatest strength is my ability to effectively handle multiple projects and deadlines.
When I’m working on a project, I don’t want just to meet deadlines. Rather, I prefer to
complete the project well ahead of schedule.
I have exceeded my sales goals every quarter and I’ve earned a bonus each year since I started with my current employer.
My time management skills are excellent and I'm organized, efficient and take pride
in excelling at my work.
I pride myself on my customer service skills and my ability to resolve what could be difficult situations.
What is Your Greatest Weakness?
When you’re asked what your greatest weakness is, try to turn a negative into a
positive. For example, a sense of urgency to get projects completed or wanting to
triple-check every item in a spreadsheet can be turned into a strength i.e. you are a
candidate who will make sure that the project is done on time and your work will
be close to perfect.
Note that the term WEAKNESS isn't used in the sample answers - you always want
to focus on the positive when interviewing. When I'm working on a project, I don't want
just to meet deadlines. Rather, I prefer to complete the project well ahead of schedule. Being organized wasn’t my strongest point, but I implemented a time management
system that really helped my organization skills.
I like to make sure that my work is perfect, so I tend to perhaps spend a little too much
time checking it. However, I've come to a good balance by setting up a system to ensure
everything is done correctly the first time. I used to wait until the last minute to set
appointments for the coming week. But I realized that scheduling in advance makes
much more sense.
