The weakness question is one of the most dreaded questions and one that causes some of the most confusion on how exactly to answer it.
I don’t like any of the advice out there. Why? Because most of it leaves interviewers either rolling their eyes or feeling like the answer was rushed and too surface level.
As an interviewer, I interviewed over 10k people. And during that time, I noticed a trend. That when a candidate answered the weakness question in a specific way (one that was authentic and vulnerable) that I and hiring managers got very excited. So I asked myself - why?
And what I noticed was this…the underdog story sells. We all love a good underdog story, so I came up with a formula that you can apply to this question. So that you too, can find an authentic and a little bit vulnerable way to answer this question so that hiring managers, recruiters and decision makers get really excited about you too.

The job search seems to be going well. You’re applying for jobs. You’re getting interviews.
The problem is? You just can’t seem to get past that telephone pre-screen and you don’t know why.
Telephone pre-screens were literally my bread and butter as a recruiter which means I know exactly how to get past them.
The whole purpose of the prescreen is to know “can you do the job?”, which means the structure and format is based on the fastest way to get that information.

Getting laid off from my toxic job was the best thing that ever happened to me because the drama of these toxic relationships kept me in a rumination cycle.
Fluctuating between self-hatred (focused on what’s wrong with me) and self-righteous anger (focused on what an effed up company).
Back and forth.
The “me” problem meant that I didn’t believe that I deserved more.
The “them” problem meant that I just got angrier.
This is called the river of misery. Essentially it’s us swimming in the suck and not trying to get out.
Not feeling better.
Not anything but hating yourself and your life.
Getting laid off allowed me to see the shore.
That my work didn’t have to be like that anymore.
So I decided to climb out of the river.
To learn exactly how I did this, head on over to YouTube and I’m going to teach you how.
