They say, it's the toughest job interview question!

How do you prepare for it?

Come UNprepared to the Sunday Practice.

You don't need to rehearse your story.

However, your practice will be effective if you prepare a list of "weaknesses" that you know you have, but you don't know how to talk about them and whether they're worth mentioning at a job interview.

Consider mentioning the following weaknesses in your answer:

  • Getting caught up in details
  • Unable to let go of projects
  • Trouble saying “no” to others
  • Managing missed deadlines
  • Little experience in certain areas
  • Lacking confidence at times
  • Difficulty asking for help
  • Working with certain personalities
  • Maintaining a work-life balance
  • Requiring specificity

You can also mention:

  • impatience
  • being disorganized
  • trouble delegating
  • being overly self-critical
  • being timid in certain contexts
  • being too blunt
  • being too talkative

Remember that you need to put your answer in a story that makes sense to an interviewer. Your story must have a beginning, a middle, and end, and a lesson.

Tomorrow, during the Sunday Practice, I'll share the exact framework that you can use to talk about your weaknesses so that your answers demonstrate self-awareness and problem-solving skills.

I'll see you tomorrow!


P.S. If you can't attend tomorrow, the replay will be instantly available.
