As career advisor to Radio Canada International’s The Link, and, my role is to answer job search questions that listeners or readers send via email. One question that gets asked often is how to answer the strengths and weaknesses question in an interview. A few months ago, a jobseeker from Richmond Hill, Ontario, wrote: “I have recently been to over 5 interviews in the past few weeks. During the duration of each interview the interviewer asks me what my biggest weakness is. I find it extremely difficult to answer this question knowing that it will somehow work to my disadvantage no matter what I say. Is there a way to turn this into a positive?” This episode will give some pointers on how to answer this dreaded question and turn your negative into a positive. Stay tuned.
