During job interviews, it’s typical for interviewers to inquire about a candidate’s professional weaknesses. In response, job seekers should aim to present any shortcomings in a manner that reflects self-awareness and a dedication to improving professionally. Dr. Gamini Hewawasam, who is an official member of the Forbes Coaches Council, offers strategies to reveal weaknesses without resorting to humble bragging or overly harsh self-criticism. By applying these suggestions, you can transform your potential vulnerabilities into stories of strength and flexibility.

Dr. Gamini Hewawasam suggests that you “Frame Your Weakness As A Learning Opportunity.”

“Approach the question with honesty and self-awareness, framing your weakness as a learning opportunity. Discuss specific actions you’ve taken to improve, demonstrating self-reliance and a desire to evolve. Connect this process to how it makes you a better fit for the role, showing self-confidence and a commitment to personal growth. Avoid disclosing too much and insincere responses.”– Gamini Hewawasam, PhD
