    What should I tell Interviewer when they ask about my Strength and weakness?

    I have completed my B.A and looking for job. Recently I have got a call for receptionist post in MNC Company. Whenever I go for interview they ask me about my strength and weakness. How should I answer this question?

    Hi..I can surely understand your problem as these are tricky questions and are very important in getting you through the interviews..So you should try to answer these questions in the best way possible..

    firstly you should prepare these answers beforehand so you dont have to think much at that moment..

    As for your strengths you should answer by telling the interviewer about your most endearing qualities like hard work, dedication, honesty etc which will make a gud impression...Always speak the truth in these questions and dont just say anything..

    As for your weakness you should try to manipulate this question and dont tell them anything work related which can decrease your chances of getting the job.. You can tell them about your general weakness which aren't work related like memory, stamina, distraction ..

    Best of luck.. thanks

    Hi..You should just tell the interviewer what your strength is stating the truth and not making up any stories..Just tell him about the positive aspects of your personality and especially those that concern your job..Just be confident and dont appear nervous while answering such questions..Be cool and composed..

    As regarding your weakness tell him some negative points about your personality but try not to mention something related to your job as that lead to bad impression..

    I hope you understand.. Good luck.. Thanks

    Hi friend,
    Hope you are in good health and good state of mind!

    Interview is an important aspect in getting selected for the job.
    Make sure that you face the interview with full confidence.

    Always tell as much as possible about your strengths.
    Make sure that you highlight your achievements.


    As far as weakness is concerned,you must quote your weakness in such a way that it turns out to be a good quality.
    Let me explain you with an example.
    You might say that you weakness is that you sometimes push yourself and others to the limit in order to complete the work.

    So this is in a way your positive strength that you want the task completed no matter how much is required.

    This is the most important question which is generally asked during the interview time. If they ask about the strength then you have to tell about your positive points/ your merits etc for example: i am time punctual/leadership quality etc.
    If they ask about the weakness then tell what weakness you have present tell only one this will show our negative effects so try to tell only one. As we all know that in this world no anyone is perfect so you also have some weakness so if they ask then dont forget to tell them.

    Hi..
    First of all congratulations on being a graduate! Your concern this matter is understandable as this is one of the favourite questions of the interviewee. While describing your strenghths you should always begin your sentence with, "As a person". This creates a good impression on the interviewee as this tells him that these strengths are a part and parcel of your personality. While mentioning your strengths you should talk about those qualities of yours that are sure to make you stand out from the rest of the crowd. You can talk about your sincerity, your hardwork, your perseverance, your dilligenece and your ability to complete the task allotted to you within a stipulated time frame etc.

    While talking about ypur strengths start with, "As a person" and at the same time also give such weaknesses which can be called your strengths. For example you can say that your obsession to do a task allotted to you till the time it is perfect can be quoted as your weakness. At the same time it also highlights how dedicated you are towards your work. Keep in mind another important point of telling how do you plan to improve your weakness.

    All the best for your interview!

    be yourself before facing interview tell your strengths first honestly they may also cross check you and check your strengths.. but be tricky and think logically in telling your weakness this may lead you into problems weakness should not be shared every one has a weakness.. think in a positive frame and tell them your weakness which is easy to improve upon
