From deciding what to wear to figuring out how to answer tough questions, interviewing for a job is intimidating. Presenting yourself in the best light is crucial to nailing an interview and leaving the best impression on a hiring manager or interviewer.
Modis President Jack Cullen has generously joined us to provide his insight on how to tackle the toughest interview questions that candidates often face. In the first video in our series, he’s discussing the dreaded “What’s your biggest weakness?”
Admitting weakness and explaining how you’ve acknowledged and turned that weakness into a strength excellent strategy. Here’s a few specific examples of how to tackle this tough question:
- “Organization used to be an issue for me, but I enlisted some of my more organized co-workers for tips and advice that really helped my organization skills.”
- “I had difficulty with Java in my one of my previous positions, but I took some online classes to boost my skill set and increase my proficiency.”
- “In the past I would procrastinate, and I’d find myself rushing to meet deadlines. Now I schedule my time in advance which allows me to give my projects the time and attention they deserve.”
