What are your weaknesses?

This is one of the most common job interview questions you'll face. How you answer can tell a prospective employer a lot about you.

Our students tackled it headfirst as Nicolas Chu, (Professor of Practice at UNSW Business School, Founder & CEO of Sinorbis) Christina Chun, (Entrepreneur, Director at Walker Advisory) Sapna Patel, (Founder & CEO of ImmiAdvisor) and Blair Slater (UNSW's Head of Student Academic & Career Success), gave us their feedback. 

Take a look at their responses, and what employers are really looking for when you answer this question.
