I have faced this question before. What are your strengths & weaknesses?..... I tell about my strengths and the specific cases, wherein I performed great!.....But I find it hard to answer the other half...about my weaknesses. Well, to be honest my weakness is punctuality. Be it to the office or to a party, I am always late by 5 mts/10 mts. But if I say this, I know I wouldn't get the job. What am I supposed to say? But when it comes to project deadlines or work, I am always in time.That is not a problem. I know of a guy who got a job as a fresher at college, for the same question, which he replied....that his weakness is his fear for darkness and solitude. The interviewer liked this answer
If I had a candidate I liked and he said that he was always by 5-10 min I would not consider that a problem. Would it need improvement? Perhaps. 10 min late to work everyday if compensated by leaving 10 min later isn't a problem. Coming 10 min late to every meeting would be. But I suspect it's often the former. I also think many people have this problem and someone who recognizes and can admit to it is probably a step above the others. (On that note, punctuality isn't exactly my best quality either. :-p) I would also believe this to be a truly honest answer which also speaks to the candidates integrity. --Mark
Hi, Mark very much has it. Late to work is not the main problem, the main problem is the quality of work perform while you at work. It is the unspoken perk of been professional career, than blue collar workers. If you are smooth, the hiring manager will allow you set up your own time to show up. By smooth, I am not mean chatter box, boastful, etc. smooth quality is professional, smart, and sincere. Fortunately, this quality is build. Anyone could do it, practice will make perfect.
