There are certain questions that recruiters love to ask their candidates, and two of the most popular ones are undoubtedly:
If you’ve never known quite how to answer them — keep reading as we go through ten strengths and ten weaknesses that will make you look like the ideal applicant during your interview!
If you’re in a job interview, it’s because the employer sees some potential in you, and this question is a great opportunity for you to convince them that they’re right.
Bragging too much or listing 1001 strengths in a row are two huge no-nos: you’ll just sound unrealistic and full of yourself. Let’s try to avoid that.

This will demonstrate that you understand and are able to exercise your strength, by pointing to a prior experience.
Remember to be specific and draft a statement beforehand that you can review.
