Interviews: Learn to Bite Your Tongue!
"I love doing good work, and push myself hard to be the best I can be. I do find at times that I can get frustrated with co-workers if I feel they aren't trying. However, I try to remind myself that everyone makes mistakes and that showing my frustration won't help the situation."
Notice you don't just explain your weakness, but you define how you negate it. Dale: I do hope you work at making J.T.'s version true. There's that old saying about someone "not suffering fools gladly." Well, "not suffering gladly" is not suffered gladly in corporate life (unless you're Steve Jobs). You're going to come across fools in every job, some in high places, and it's part of your job to suffer them long enough to help educate them. Feel free to send questions to J.T. and Dale via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or write to them in care of King Features Syndicate, 300 W. 57th Street, 15th Floor, New York, NY 10019. © 2011 by King Features Syndicate, Inc.
