Human Resource Interview - What are your greatest Strengths and WeaknessesWe are citing some of the aspects that you may put forward as being your strengths. Please ensure that you list the points well before hand.
Self Motivation and Determination
To be successful in anything, we needs to be self motivated and determined. Without self motivation, it is very much possible that even the best resources will languish in the company without achieving any success. A determined and a self motivated employee can achieve a lot given the opportunities.
Self Confidence and Intelligence
Being intelligent having essential logic, street smart skills and practical knowledge combined with self-confidence with help to achieve much better results.
Strong Success Oriented and Natural Leader
When it comes to good companies, they always search for an employee who is self motivated and has the drive within their own self. In practicality, the company doesn't have much time to scout which of their employees has that next big idea, or which the employees are not working according to their talents and resources. In the best interests of the company, they should have a self appointed mentor who keeps these things in mind and speaks regularly at the appropriate time. This very characteristic is very vital for people in management positions like team leaders, program managers and project managers and other higher up managers.
Excellent Team Player
No one can do anything alone in today’s world, a person or employee requires a group of people or a team to succeed and to achieve something. As such, being a team player is almost as important as any academic degree. Please ensure that you try to highlight this skill in a crafty manner.
Hardworking and Skillful
One of the most common traits found in a successful managers as well as a successful employee. It is often said that success is 90% percent hard work and 10% percent critical thinking or brain activity. Just any company would like to have a hard working resource who gives everything to the job. Speak about those qualities like hard-work, dedication and commitment as your greatest strengths to impress the interviewer.
There may be instances when interviewers will also ask whether you have any weaknesses.
When answering the question related to weaknesses, ensure that you describe the weaknesses in such a ambiguous way so that the interviewer will feel that they can be converted into strengths.
Sharing others workload
There are some people in companies who have this habit of taking all kinds of work from their colleagues and peers, whether it is their work or not. These kind of people are an asset to the company, but when they work in a team it might lead to some issues.
Being a Debater
Some employees are too passionate about their work and at times they require a reason for any change that can introduced in the organization. Though this is good for the project and the product, it might also create friction among the employees.
Lack of learning skills
There is no person in the world who has all the requisite skills for a job profile, there may be something that may be lacking. We can term this as one of the disadvantages that one has, because once a person gets a job and starts earning, they hardly find time as also become complacent for learning. As such, importance should be given on self training and learning new things.
Getting Nervous with the people in office
In today's world, with the arrival of the new work culture, we have come to such a situation that a person in office hardly meets another and that the only time people speak to each other is during coffee breaks, lunch breaks, etc where there is not much of interaction and as such there are some people who tend to become introverts. Such things causes some people to become nervous they give presentations and speeches in front of their peers.
