Call it a classic or a worn out cliché, but despite its problems, this old chestnut still seems to appear over and over in the interview setting: “What would you consider your greatest weakness?”The question is impossible to answer honestly, of course. Even if candidates know exactly what their “greatest weakness” is, they’re wise not to share and discuss it during a job interview. So most people answer with an avoidant dodge like “I work too hard” or “I care too much”.But regardless of what you choose to say aloud, when you’re presented with this question, do you know the real answer? Have you given this puzzle some serious thought and self-reflection? If you’ve never honestly assessed your skills and strengths and taken a close, hard look at the lowest item on the list, now may be a good time to tackle this task. Doing so can only help you become a better employee and stronger professional. Here are a few considerations to keep in mind.
