Job Interview: What Are Your Strengths and Weaknesses

Category : Uncategorized

An interview is the short span of time spent with each other, in which a person has to decide whether the employee is perfect for the job or not. To establish this, the ‘interviewer” asks several questions.
Keeping in mind there are different people who may interview you throughout the hiring process.
Ex. The dentist, office manager, or a company hired by the dental office and or personality test.

Certain questions are quite simple and can be answered immediately, while some are not as simple and require some thought before the answer is given. One good example of this is the question regarding strengths and weaknesses.

Strengths that employers look for in a new candidate: 

Perhaps you’re incredibly organized. Or, you might excel at motivating people, helping resolve disagreement, or researching hard-to-find information. I enjoy challenges and figuring out new tasks/projects, then getting good at them. I am very motivated and driven, very honest and hungry to keep learning.

Whatever your strengths, you have something valuable to offer. Find a role within your team that allows you to do what you do well. This will help you make a meaningful contribution – and increase your chances of doing a great job. Plus, it’s usually much easier, and more satisfying, to do tasks when you’re naturally good at them.

Learning quickly and having effective communication skills
Research shows who will perform well and succeed in a new job is the one who possesses ability to learn quickly and the one who can adjust himself/herself to changes and new situations. Also, effective interpersonal communication skill is one of the best personal traits.

Self Motivated and Determined
To achieve success, one needs to be self motivated and determined to succeed. All companies search for an individual who has the drive within himself or herself.

Team Player
But how, exactly, do you go about showing that you’re a team player during a interview? You could explain your commitment of meeting goals or deadlines. During previous work or school you were the one other team members depended on. One should avoid gossip, politics, and religion. Showing appreciation of other members of the dental team. Team players should work on having diversity, attitude, and being candid.

This is one of the most common traits found in a successful boss as well as a successful employee. It is said that success is ninety percent hard work and ten percent thinking/brain activity. Any company would like to have a hard-working employee. Therefore, you can speak about hard-work, dedication and commitment as your strengths.

Intelligence and Self Confidence
Being intelligent does not mean being the only person in the room who can drive a plane, but a person who has the simple logic and practical knowledge that goes with running a proper team.

Employer ask what are some of your Weaknesses:

Several interviewers will also ask whether you have any weaknesses. When it comes to weaknesses, make sure that you describe the weaknesses that are vague enough to be converted into strengths.

Here are some of the weaknesses that are generally discussed.

• I am too much of a perfectionist.

• I work too hard sometimes.

• I care too much about my work.

Sensitive person: Taking things to heart and getting too disappointed when things are done in the wrong way.

Too helpful: Crossing limits while helping teammates.

Lack of some skills: No person has all the requisite skills for the job profile.

Getting Nervous around people: Shy
 There are some people who have become introverts because all we do is text and email. Remember communication if key for a good employee so I would pick another topic or ways you are improving your verbal and communication skills.

The Yin and the Yang

Personality Type Strength Weakness
(Get It Right)
Thinking Excludes feelings from decisions
Thorough Goes too far; perfectionist
Disciplined Too rigid or demanding of self/others
(Get It Done)
Independent Has trouble operating with others
Decisive Does not take time to consider other perspectives
Determined Domineering; too focused on doing it “my way”
(Get along)
Supportive Tends to conform to wishes of others
Patient No time boundaries; things do not get done
Diplomatic Not assertive or directive
(Get appreciated)
Good communicator Talks too much
Enthusiastic Comes on too strong
Imaginative Dreamer; unrealistic

Hope this helps on your next interview.
