We’ve addressed your strengths, but what about your weaknesses? You don't want to highlight these too much, but of course, you still need to answer the question.
Everyone has weaknesses, whether we want to admit to it or not, but we usually wouldn’t want to talk about them in an interview.
There are ways around overemphasising your flaws such as counteracting it with a strength. For example;
Being organised wasn't always my strongest trait, but I found ways to manage my time and therefore my organizational skills.
I like to make sure that my work is perfect, so I tend to spend a little too much time checking through it. However, I've come to a good balance by setting up a system to ensure everything is done correctly the first time.
I used to wait until the last minute to set appointments for the coming week, but I realised that scheduling in advance makes things much easier.
By turning your weaknesses into strengths, you’re still answering the question, but showing your ability to adapt and problem-solve – a great quality to have!
