Thursday Think (+) Positive: Ace the Interview– Cheat on the “Strengths and Weaknesses” Question|
“My biggest weakness is that I’m a perfectionist.” We’ve all done it-said it-and spun it.
Speaking to your weaknesses, or even your strengths for that matter can be difficult. Most of the time it feels like you’re drudging up some career center advised crap that is supposed to sound good.
But what if you could walk into an interview and speak to your specific limitations and more importantly, your strongest traits with in-depth levels of specificity? Or how about knowing exactly what types of situations allow you to really be in your element? Not only would you know exactly how to talk about yourself in an interview, but also you’d have a better idea of the type of organization to apply to in the first place!
Well, do I have great news for you. The magic is in one 15-minute test, and it’ll be more interesting than all of those college-finals combined. Promise. Tony Robbins, famed motivational speaker and self-help guru, is currently offering his Personal Strengths Profile online for free which will give you a complete understanding of your behavioral style and personality. Research shows that self-awareness is the common trait among successful people. And, after one session of answering instinctual questions online (there’s no studying or over-thinking involved), you will have a complete summary and analysis of what drives and motivates you. Additionally, you’re provided with a DISC-analysis report, which will tell you the situations where you are the most successful and it will also outline your general limitations.
If you want to get really in-tune with how to articulate your effectiveness as a candidate for employment or have a better understanding of the positions and organizational cultures that are right for you, take this test today. Self-awareness and success go hand-in-hand.
I was a junior in college when I first took the Personal Strengths Profile as I prepared for my coveted ESPN internship interview. I can honestly say it was the reason I aced that interview and later got the gig. Ever since, I have incorporated the Personal Strengths Profile into my interview “prep”. Thus, I’ve been able to fully and authentically articulate my areas of opportunity and characteristics of strength to any interviewer or boss-and I want all of you to be able to do the same. It’s a resource and tool that will absolutely give you a leg up on the competition.
