Show Notes

“Tell me about your weakness” could be the most annoying and confusing question to receive during a job interview. Should you answer honestly? Should you find the silver lining and tell the interviewer how you grew as a result of your weakness? So many questions. In this episode, I discuss: 

  • What this question is really about
  • How to reframe the question in your brain
  • The best way to lean into your blindspots to answer this question
