What is your biggest weakness?

An answer “I don’t have any weakness” doesn’t leave a good impression at your potential employer. We all have weaknesses just need to find the right way to describe them to our employer.

Think about something that you are not particularly strong at but could easily improve.

“I focus too much on the details”.

Being “detail-oriented” is typically a good thing, but if you’re someone who tends to spend too much time on the specifics of a project, it could also be considered a weakness. By sharing that you focus too much on details, you’re showing your interviewer that you’re capable of helping the organization avoid even minor mistakes.

My greatest weakness is that I sometimes focus too much on the details of a project. I start measuring the time I spent on each project so I could focus on what is really important.

-“I have trouble saying “No”“.

From an employer’s perspective, someone who accepts all requests seems dedicated and eager—but can also be someone who doesn’t know their limits and ends up needing help or deadline extensions to finish their work.

“My greatest weakness is that I sometimes have trouble saying ‘no’ to requests and end up taking on more than I can handle. I don’t except any more tasks I can’t handle”.

What are your salary expectations?

Employers may bring up the topic of pay at some point in the interview process.

You should research the average salary for your position and have realistic expectations.

If you don’t feel comfortable providing a single number, you may choose to offer a range instead.

“I am seeking a position that pays between 1000- 2000 dollars a month”.

“I am seeking a position that pays between 1000- 2000 dollars a month but I am open to negotiate depending on benefits and bonuses”.

How do you handle stress?

Stress is a component in many jobs, employers want to know you’ll handle it constructively with a good attitude to maintain good company culture. You can answer this question by explaining how you typically respond with an example to support it.

“I try to react to situations rather than stress. That way, I can handle the situation without becoming overly stressed. For example, when I deal with an unsatisfied customer, rather than focusing on feeling stressed, I focus on the task at hand. I believe my ability to communicate effectively with customers during these moments helps reduce my own stress”.

“The pressure is very important to me. Good pressure—such as having many assignments or an upcoming deadline—helps me to stay motivated and productive”.

Why should we hire you?

Employers might ask this question to understand what differentiates you from other candidates they might be interviewing. To answer, explain how your experience, skills, and attributes make you the best fit for the job. Make sure to carefully review the job description beforehand to understand what qualities they’re looking for.

“I believe that my experience with technology, specifically in the web design space, makes me the best match for this position. In my previous job, I was responsible for maintaining and updating our company website. This required keeping employee profiles updated and continuously posting information regarding upcoming events. I truly enjoyed what I was doing, which is what drew me to this position with your company”.

Where do you see yourself in the next five years?

The interviewer wants to understand more about your career goals and how this position would fit into your grand plan. They care about your career goals because they want to hire someone who is motivated, proactive, and likely to stick around and work hard if hired.

“I am driven to be the best at what I do and I want to work somewhere where I’ll have opportunities to develop my skills, take on interesting projects, and work with people I can really learn from. Some of the most innovative thinkers in the industry work here and that’s a big reason why I would love to build a career here.”

“My goal right now is to find a position at a company where I can grow and take on new challenges over time. Ultimately, I’d like to assume more management responsibilities and get involved in product strategy”.

Why did you leave your last job?

This can be a challenging question to answer. Perhaps you left your job due to long hours and impossible deadlines. If you do not phrase your explanation carefully, you might appear lazy or unmotivated, which is off-putting to employers.

“I have been at my company for three years now and have learned a lot from working with some amazing salespeople. I worked my way up to regional sales manager 18 months ago and my region has beat our sales projections by at least 25% each quarter since. However, I am starting to feel like I need some new challenges. This position really appeals to me because it would allow me to manage a bigger team and sell more innovative products.”

“I have been thinking for a while that I’d like to work for a bigger company with more opportunities for growth. This position seems like a great fit because of my successful background in online marketing and my experience running a team”.
