This Ain't A Gameshow!

Post #1300

I've been helping interview candidates for another group within finance; they're hiring a financial analyst to replace someone that transferred to another position. This candidate has a MBA in finance and >10 years of work experience. One of the interviewers told me that she asked the candidate a pretty standard question, "What is your weakness?" I hate that question since everyone is trained to say something that can be turned into a perceived strength. However, this candidate answered, "Uh, that's a difficult question... pass."

Sorry, this is a job interview. I guess she was being honest... but you have to answer the question best you can.
