When we go for job interviews, we are often asked mostly about our strength and weaknesses. Some answer the question well, while others do not. One thing you should know is that there are things that you can turn from weakness to strength, which is for the job you are not fully qualified to do.
But are there actual weaknesses that you can easily turn into strengths, deficiencies you can overcome? And what would that mean for your career? Could you round out weak spots enough to even land a job you're not entirely qualified for?
While in other aspects or field, it is easy to and often advised to hide your weak point for people not to see, but in business you are allowed to have weaknesses and can turn them into strengths. That can only be done when you realize that weaknesses can be made strong and to also know what your weaknesses are.
Knowing your weaknesses will help you to find the solution to them, some of the solutions can be; Taking lessons on what you do not know, it can be formal classes or self lectures, which involves buying books on the subject and making time to study them.
Having started the lessons, start practicing. You can do that by having conversations with people whom you feel are experts in that subject. Practicing in areas where you are weak is a sure way to improvement.
Read what Ryan wrote in her post How To Get A Job You’re Not Qualified For, ‘ Ever wonder what happened when you interview for a job you're fully qualified for, but it goes to someone who doesn’t seem to be qualified at all? How’d that person get the job when he had none of the qualifications listed in the job ad?
That applicant figured out the business pain point that is seldom, if ever, mentioned in the job ad, and then how to address it. [He] wrote a compelling letter, first… He went to the job interview. He didn't talk about how he met each of the requirements on the job ad. [He] had none of the qualifications.
He asked questions instead. He asked probing questions to learn more about the business pain. By doing so, this less-qualified person soon learned that the hiring managers needed something different from what was listed in the job ad, and perhaps someone surprising traditional for the role.
Know this, that what you see on the surface of a job interview ad might not really be what is inside of it. Hiring personnel might really need someone different for a job position than what is on the job ad. So try not to relent at any job interview you see, remember that finding your weakness on certain requirements and knowing how to solve it is key to finding a job that you feel is beyond your reach.
