The first rule of Gina School surrounds answering the popular interview question, “What is your biggest weakness?” Many individuals respond that they work too hard, or give another similar answer. These common answers end up showing that you actually don’t work hard, since you’ve used one of the most common lines as your response, without putting any thought into it. The second rule-of-thumb is to always memorize the names of people you are in close contact with each day. Avoiding excuses such as you’re bad with names will show others that they are important to you.
- When you go to a job interview think critically about what your greatest flaw is, know what matters, and read more about the issues.
- It is critical to know the names of the people you interact with regularly because not knowing their names is a sign of laziness.
- It is easy to make people feel miserable, but it takes real talent to lift other people up and make them feel better.
