I was asked at an interview what my biggest weakness was, and I had no clue how to answer. What is a good answer for this that doesn’t make me seem incompetent?

This question is asked at almost every single interview, and it remains one of the hardest ones to answer. We recommend that you use a weakness that can easily be turned into a strength. For example, if you are really passionate about your job, say that you sometimes get too focused on a project. This shows that you take your work seriously, are able to recognize this weakness, and that because you recognize it, are able to account for it within your work. That way your prospective employer sees your passion, and knows that you understand your limitations.
