"What is your greatest strength?" is one
of the easier interview questions you ll be
asked. When you are asked questions about
your strengths, it s important to discuss
attributes that will qualify you for the job.
The best way to respond is to describe the
skills and experience that directly correlate
with the job you are applying for.
When I m working on a project, I don t
want just to meet deadlines. Rather, I prefer
to complete the project well ahead of sched-
ule.I have exceeded my sales goals every
quarter and I ve earned a bonus each year
since I started with my current employer.
My time management skills are excellent
and I m organised, efficient, and take pride
in excelling at my work.
I pride myself on my customer service
skills and my ability to resolve what could
be difficult situations.
How will your greatest strength help you
As a follow up to being asked about your
greatest strengths, you may be asked about
how your greatest strength helped your per-
formance on the job. When you respond,
relate your strengths to both the job descrip-
tion and your ability to perform at work.
My greatest strength is my ability to work
with many different people. I enjoy learning
from everyone I meet, and in this position
I believe that will enhance my ability to
perform on the team.
My greatest strength is my ability to focus
on my work. I m not easily distracted, and
this means that my performance is very
high, even in a busy office like this one.
My greatest strength is my ability to focus
on the job at hand. I m not easily distracted
from the big picture.
My organisational skills are my greatest
strength. I m capable of keeping many proj-
ects on track at the same time.
How would you describe yourself?
I m a people person. I really enjoy meeting
and working with a lot of different people.
I m a perfectionist. I pay attention to all
the details, and like to be sure that everything
is just right.
I m a creative thinker. I like to explore
alternative solutions to problems and have
an open mind about what will work best.
I m efficient and highly organised. This
enables me to be as productive as possible
on the job.
I enjoy solving problems, troubleshooting
issues, and coming up with solutions in a
Describe a typical work week
Interviewers expect a candidate for employment
to discuss what they do while they are working in
detail. Before you answer, consider the position you
are applying for and how your current or past positions
relate to it. The more you can connect your past
experience with the job opening, the more successful
you will be at answering the questions.
It should be obvious that it s not a good idea talk
about non-work related activities that you do on
company time, but, I ve had applicants tell me how
they are often late because they have to drive a child
to school or like to take a long lunch break to work
at the gym.
Keep your answers focused on work and show the
interviewer that you re organised ("The first thing I
do on Monday morning is check my voicemail and
e-mail, then I prioritise my activities for the week.")
How would you describe your work style?
When you are asked about how you work during
an interview, it s important to impress the interviewer
with your competency and accuracy, rather than just
Here are sample answers to the interview question
"How would you describe your work style?"
I am very focused on my work, and consequently,
am able to work quickly.
I keep a steady pace, and check my work as I go
along, to prevent mistakes from snowballing.
Because I am very organised, I am able to accom-
plish a lot in a limited amount of time.
I m organised and efficient and I m able to multi-
task very well.
I m always on top of my projects, but I do welcome
input and will consult with team members to ensure
we re all on the same track.
How to tell an employer you work well
Hiring managers often mention that some of the
interview questions which don t typically get the
best responses from job applicants are questions
about working with others. Companies want to know
how you work well with other people and you ll need
to say more than you enjoy working with others,
which is the standard response.
It s important because even if your role in the com-
pany doesn t require a lot of communication, you
will still need to deal with those you work with in
a professional and personable manner.
