    How should I answer the interviewer if he/she asks the question “What are you really good at?”

    Recently when I attend the interview in a company they asked me this question “What are you really good at?” but I don’t know how to answer this question as I told something which I am really not good at. Will that create a problem? Can you tell me how to tackle this question well?

    Well firstly Lie if you are that good at lying. One lie leads to another that may lead to your rejection.If you are willing to lie on a certain topic go to the depth of the probable questions he may backfire on you, and prepare accordingly.
    But if you are not that confident go for the Truth.You will always feel confident while telling truth.Your truth should be what the interviewer is looking for.So you should know what the interviewer is looking for in you.

    Ok if you are not prepared yourself well to do answer you will be proved as less smart.just you are to answer which will add your quality.you think in your life what you like more and more eg your hoby.your answer should be progressive.it will be good if the hoby is related to your job.

    Hi ,


    The first and the foremost important thing is show yourself confident in what you know.

    If they asks you what your really good at tell about your area of interest

    Any new techie thing your are really interested at.

    Its just a formal way of question to make you feel comfortable.

    They will start questioning you from the things your comfortable with.

    Answer to the content and be confident of the answer.

    Because its been asked from the thing which you said you where really good at.



    Best wishes.


    Thank you !!!

    Hey

    It seems the interview is already over and even if you get selected it wont really matter what you said during the interview. It wont create a problem.

    2nd thing is how to tackle this question. Its hard to say on what context he must have asked you this question but i would have replied is " Sir am good at working in groups, team work, i work in confidence and i deliver on time".

    If its related to your skills then just say what skills you are good at like java,c/c++ etc

    Anyways keep this in mind for your next interview. And if you are already selected for this dont worry you wont face any problem. Sometimes you have to say things which they want to here in order to be selected.

    Thanks

    dear,
    see it's question means that in which field are you good... like in which field you have interest and you know more about...
    so why are you getting panic about this...
    if you think that you are good in whatever field you are confident on that so clearly you tell them don't get nervous...
    suppose if they are asking something about that field in which you are interested so better to keep quiet they won't eat you because nobody is perfect...
    thanks...

    Hi guest, Lies in the interview may affect your job. So it is always said that you must prepare well for the interview and may ready to face all kind of situations, questions in the interview. If they asked you to "What are you really good at" ? If you answered false fact then it may affect or may not affect, it depends upon the intervieweer , how he takes it. If any incidence comes against you, like the situation you mentioned, you must have to do it. Thanx

    hello,
    First thing i want to say here that do not lie because they will ask question based on your interest.
    You can give answers as follows:
    1)If you are good in computer programming tell that.
    2)If you are good in any sports you can tell.
    3)Based on your good quality and the area where you are good you can tell.
    Thank u..

    Re: How should I answer the interviewer if he/she asks the question “What are you really good at?”

    Hi. I think you certainly know at what all things you are really good at which are related to the company's work. You should yourself decide this based on your capabilities and skills.

    If you are a fresher then its surely difficult to know what you are really good at as you havent done any tasks yet.

    But if you are experienced then you should surely know what all skills you possess and what tasks related to a company's work can you perform the best.

    So before going to the next interview you should think it over and prepare your answer well in advance.


    If you tell them a thing which you are not good at then surely this will create a bad impression if they find it out later on and affect your job.

    Best of luck. Thanks

    It looks the interview is already over and albeit you get elect it wont extremely matter what you same throughout the interview. It wont produce a haul.

    ordinal issue is the way to tackle this question. Its laborious to mention on what context he should have asked you this question however i might have replied is " Sir am smart at operating in teams, team work, i add confidence and that i deliver on time".

    If its associated with your skills then simply say what skills you're smart at like java,c/c++ etc

    Anyways keep this in mind for your next interview. And if you're already elect for this dont worry you wont face any downside. typically you have got to mention things that they need to here so as to be elect.

    Lies within the interview might have an effect on your job. thus it's perpetually same that you just should prepare well for the interview and should able to face all reasonably things, queries within the interview. If they asked you to "What are you actually smart at" ? If you answered false truth then it should have an effect on or might not have an effect on, it depends upon the inquirer , however he takes it. If any incidence comes against you, just like the state of affairs you mentioned, you need to ought to eff.

    Hi.. I do understand your dilemma as these questions are difficult to tackle as these are very tricky and a person can easily get confused..

    So you shouldnt worry now and next time try to answer such questions coolly..

    You should not get nervous at that time so prepare answers for such questions beforehand..

    When they ask you "what are you good at" then you should tell them the things related to your job which you really are expert at...These are your strengths and you shouldn't shy away from mentioning them..Always speak the truth and dont just say anything during the interview..

    Have confidence in your abilities.. Best of luck.. Thanks

    ================================================== ====================================

    Hi friend,
    Hope you are in good health and good state of mind!
    It's always a treat and fun to answer your queries.
    I also appreciate the confidence that you have shown in us!

    Its good to see that you are so serious about the interview.
    I am giving you 5 golden tips that you should follow.
    These are-

    1. Eye Contact
    2. Take a deep breath everytime you start speaking
    3. Be polite and positive
    4. Show your strengths
    5. Practice before an Interview

    Along with this I'm sending you an URL of a video that shows how to crack interview.
    The video URL is-

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NxFj8Mc7R7o

    Hope this video will help you a great deal!

    Coming back to the question,you need to tell how you can prove as an asset for the company.
    Make them feel that you are the right person for the job and only you!
    For this,tell them about your capabilities and your achievements before them.
    Tell them about your strong points and hobbies as well.
    And make sure that the strong points matches with the requirements of the job.
    E.g.,if you are appearing for the job of a programmer,then you can say that you like programming and make programs in free time.
    This will give an impression that you are interested in programming and enjoy doing it.
    Answer this in the confident manner.
    It should be such that the interviewer starts feeling that you are the best person for this job!


    I hope I have answered all your doubts.
    It was a pleasure answering your queries.
    Hope that you'll come up with some more challenging queries!
    Till then,take care.
    Bye!

    Re: How should I answer the interviewer if he/she asks the question “What are you really good at?”

    Its a very general question that is being asked in most of the interviews by the interviewer.........
    You need to be very confident while answering to this question, and don't lie in this question,
    Because you may be asked the question from that section only....
    So, tell them only that field in which you are really strong....
    You must be knowing each and every thing of that area without any confusion..
    And one more thing tell such type of thing which is in the favour of the company......
