AT A RE­CENT JOB IN­TER­VIEW THEY ASKED ME ABOUT STRENGTHS AND WEAKNESSES. WHAT ARE YOU MEANT TO SAY? PAUL, VIA EMAIL

GQ (Australia) - - THESOURCE -

Strengths are easy to talk about. But keep things fo­cused on con­crete achieve­ments, such as re­duc­ing costs by a third or ex­ceed­ing sales tar­gets by 20 per cent. The trick with weaknesses is to turn it around by show­ing how you’ve worked to im­prove in any prob­lem ar­eas – times you’ve sought ad­vice from su­pe­ri­ors, or train­ing cour­ses you’ve un­der­taken. You’ll have the job in no time.
