What are your strengths and weaknesses?
- Target Answer Ideas: Be prepared to state a few strengths. Make sure to state a weakness but pick one that could be considered a positive by those interviewing you. For example, you might say you are so passionate about education that sometimes you work too hard and don’t take enough time for yourself.
- Avoid: Taking too much time to answer. Listing no weakness or one that is detrimental to your getting a job. Don’t be like the true case of a teacher who stated that she really didn’t relate to the age of the students that she was interviewing to teach.
