Interview Tip, What is your greatest weakness

How to answer the interview question “What is your Greatest Weakness?”

Why is this question asked?Like so many people, I used to cringe when asked this question and wondered how it could add value to the interview process.  After all, nobody in their right mind admits weaknesses in interview – do they?Interestingly, an employer can learn quite a lot by asking this question. Many times their interest does not lie in identifying the actual weakness…instead they want to see how self aware you are, if you are happy to maintain the status quo or if you are constantly looking for opportunities to learn and develop.
