7 Mistakes Hiring Managers Hate
Lack of Authenticity
“I work too hard, I guess that’s my biggest professional imperfection.”
“Sometimes I am such a perfectionist that I just want to work every shift 24 hours a day, every day, seven days a week!”
While these types of answers do avoid making you sound like a lazy nurse, they also make you sound like you aren’t very authentic. A better option could be mentioning a shortcoming that you used to have but that you took steps to overcome. This answer allows you to show that you are proactive and can learn quickly. Just because you don’t exhibit superhuman excellence at every single facet that every job requires, it still proves that you are able to adapt and overcome shortcomings as they arise.
