If they state, “please give me (or us) two weaknesses”, rephrase the statement, “two areas of Improvement are. . .” When you give your strengths make sure they are of true of who you are and of value to the organization. This means you will need to research the company. Do not use “um” or “uh” when you answer this question. Show confidence in your abilities and give an example of a situation where you executed a task or displayed that strength.
