10 Ways To Answer The Most Annoying Job Interview Question Ever

Do your research so you know what they want to hear

The key to answering this question well revolves around homework said Workplaces That Work’s Lynne Eisaguirre.  “Do you know what the employer really values? If not, why are you applying? Once you know what’s important to the employer, you should not say that’s a weakness but pick something else that most people can relate to. For example, for a sales position you might say: “I love sales and working with potential clients. I find that I am so dedicating to meeting their needs that I spend all of my time on that effort. I tend to get caught up in the sales process and avoid paperwork. I am working on overcoming that weakness but it’s a struggle because I really want to spend my time with potential prospects instead.”
