What do you do right at a job interview?
When the interviewer asks:
What are three things you excel at doing?
You can say almost anything, as long as you say it with confidence. A few common answers may be:
- I’m amazing with people. I love building relationships and growing those sales connections fast. I take it as a challenge to meet every new face with a smile and get to know something personal about every customer.
- I’m high energy. No matter what time of day, I love working, so I arrive ready to achieve my goals and nothing gets me down.
- I’m a self starter. I just like to keep busy and ‘get things done’ so when I finish one thing, I’m always looking for the next thing that needs to be done.
When the interviewer asks, What is your biggest weakness?
You should know what it is that cuts you out of the bigger game. Tell them with confidence what your weakest area is, and what you’re doing about it.
- I’m a little slow getting started in the mornings, so I’ve learned to get up a little earlier, have a good breakfast, coffee, and read motivational material to jumpstart my ‘engine’ so to speak.
- I don’t like pushy controlling people, or being told what to do, so I’ve learned to listen well and get things done, so I don’t have to be micro-managed on the job, or in other life events.
- I’m a team player, and I don’t really like working by myself. I prefer working as part of a team, competing to achieve our goals.
Confidence is the biggest thing you need on a job interview. Wear comfortable, appropriate clothing, show up a little early, and be prepared. When you’re prepared, ready to meet a new boss, it shows. Smile.

Confidence is your best advantage. Use it well.
