#3 What is your greatest weakness? WEAKNESS! I don’t have any weakness… 

 

Let’s be honest here nobody is perfect. If you say you don’t have any weakness the hiring manager will instantly get the impression that (A)  you are overconfident or (B) you lack the willingness to analyze your shortcomings. This question is usually a common one asked during interviews to give an interviewer an insight into your awareness of areas for improvement. You really should use this opportunity to show how you are working to develop your skills and how the position that you are applying for will help you match your own goals.
