The most dreaded question during a question:

  • Why did you leave your last job?

Answer – There are several replies you can use when you are replying to this difficult question, but the perfect answer would be, that you are looking for a company with progression and a company you can grow alongside, and see the rest of your working future with.

This reply gives the company an idea that you are looking to stay in a company and not move about, you are wanting to progress within the company not look to move about to progress with another company.

  • What are your weaknesses?

The best way to answer this question would be to turn a negative into a positive, for example:

  • I am too much of a perfectionist
  • I work too hard sometimes
  • I care to much about my work sometimes

These answers are most used when in interviews because they are giving the company an idea that sometimes you are too much of a hard worker and it is going to give the company an idea that you haven’t got any weaknesses that will affect the company.
