Demolishun11705286dGet the book "Interview Like a Boss". Lots of good insight.
VaderNT1856286dDon't beat yourself up so much about that single question.
You know it's a stupid question, they know it's a stupid question. If you rocked that interview and they still reject you, you DON'T want to work there. It would mean they value bullshit over actual skills.
Finally, I'll share an experience of mine: The one time I got asked that question I had no answer either. So I made a joke about it and we continued the interview. Got an offer from them later. The strengths/weaknesses question didn't matter in the end.
codecrow353286dTbh, if the company REALLY interviewed you. They'd know you were qualified. Them basing their decision on shit questions doesn't make them a good candidate FOR YOU. So you technically just dodged a bullet. Remember, interviews go both ways, interrogations go one way.
