Patricia D. Sadar - Career and Leadership Acceleration Coach's curator insight, January 21, 5:18 PM

This is an excellent piece of advice that I have shared before with my readers, and still holds true today.  When you are asked questions by interviewers to identify negative situations, results, or performance...position the response in a positive way.

 

For example, if you are asked by the interviewer "What is one of your weaknesses as a leader?" 

 

Sample response:  You could respond...One of the areas of opportunity that I identified this year to develop is ______.  What I have been doing to strengthen in this areas is ______ and _______.

 

Read the article to uncover other tips on what to do to ace your interview.

Bev Stevens's curator insight, January 22, 7:18 PM

Don't hope they don't ask! Be prepared for the negative questions.
