TODAY’S TOPIC: BEHAVIORAL INTERVIEW QUESTION: TELL ME ABOUT A TIME WHEN YOU FAILED!
What’s your biggest failure?
If I was asked this question in an interview, my response would be…
“Applying for this job because undoubtedly your company doesn’t know how to effectively interview us awesome job candidates!”
Mic drop. Ha.
Okay. Back to our regularly-scheduled reality of dealing with this ridiculous job interview question, which, sorta, kinda, does have a redeeming quality or two in there somewhere.
(Shhh. Don’t tell anyone.)
You know if you interview often enough someone will ask you this.
Now, if you watch my super-compact video this week, Behavioral Interview Question: Tell Me About a Time When You Failed, you will be praying the interviewers ask you this question!
