What’s your greatest weakness?
I’m not talking about the BS answer you give in an interview (‘I work too hard!’).
I mean your actual greatest weakness.
You might be thinking of weaknesses like “Well, I’m sort of disorganized… and sometimes I lose motivation … and sometimes I’m not good at delegating tasks.”
All of those may be real weaknesses, but they take a lot of time to fix.
But if you’re currently a student or you haven’t had much full-time work experience, you have another ‘greatest weakness’ that is easily fixable:

- Examples of “emails gone astray” – kind of like watching a car accident in slow motion, but without the casualties and explosions.
- How to send effective networking emails for connecting on LinkedIn, setting up informational interviews, following up, asking about internships/jobs, and more.
- And yes: a collection of email templates that you can use for everything above.
This will be a fun one, so let’s get started:
