What Are Your Strengths And Weaknesses?

Next » « Previous


If you don't know the answer to this question, take pencil to paper and prepare a list. Focus on accomplishments. Remember, your illness is not a weakness.

When focusing on your strengths, think of anything and everything. For example, "I get along well with others," or "I am a quick learner," or "I pride myself on being a team player."

Even if you have been out of work for a long period of time due to disability, you still have strengths, even if some of your skills are a bit rusty.

If your skills are rusty, consider volunteering at a local disease specific non-profit organization or elsewhere to bring them to date. To learn more, see Volunteering.

As for your weaknesses, this is an opportunity for you to show a little bit of skill and savvy. A prospective employer really isn't expecting you to come up with something negative, but which is really a positive. Consider something like, "I can really get bogged down in details", or "My friends tell me I'm too anal about punctuality", or "I prefer to do things myself as much as I can rather than asking for help."
