Thought we could delve into the realm of the interview (we’ll come back to resumes…I have more questions).
One question I’ve heard asked before regards the dreaded question “What is your greatest weakness?”. It can be seen as a “trick question” but then most are (in that there’s no *obvious* answer…that’s the whole point of the interview, right?). Who wants to come to an interview and talk about their weaknesses anyway? Candidates want to highlight their successes.
So recruiters, I ask you (in my best Carrie Bradshaw voice), how is a candidate to approach the “greatest weakness” question and can they ever win?
