When I interview people for roles on my team, I am always looking for someone who can learn from their experiences. I need for them to be aware of the strengths that they can leverage and their areas of opportunities. When candidates tell me that they don't have areas of opportunities, I worry that they'll be able to feedback when needed.
Team fit is also super important even when working remotely. It is important that my team members feel comfortable reaching out to their peers for advice and support.
Katie recommends the following next steps:
- Make a list of your strengths and weaknesses--Be real. Everyone has opportunities, and most companies require their employees to have a development area each year. Be prepared to explain how your strengths help to shore up your weaknesses.
