Strengths & Weaknesses!

Well, last week I was delivering a CV & interview tips masterclass (sounds a bit too grand, doesn’t it!) at the Enfield Jobs Fair organised by MP Nick De Bois and opened by London Mayor, Boris Johnson. During the Q & A session after the seminar, one lady wanted to know how to deal with her “weakness”! Fair enough I said, bring it on! After all, I AM The Recruitment Guy and I know my ‘stuff’.

The problem this lady had was that she was often late to work!!!!

Is this a weakness or simply poor life skills, bad organisation or just plain laziness? I suggested that it was not a weakness and that ANY employer would have a challenge with someone who was regularly late!

And you know what? She nodded her head and agreed with me………Go figure!
