NOTE: Tell your actual strengths, everyone has a strength e.g. work hard, I’m not lazy towards my work, I’m self motivated, can work under pressure, punctual etc.
Tip: Only tell your weaknesses if interviewer asks you e.g. I don’t feel comfortable until I finish my work, emotional, I easily trust on people etc.
Note: Don’t tell hobbies which you don’t pursue because interviewer can ask you questions pertaining to your hobbies for example if someone says that my hobby is reading books. Then Interviewer can ask him/her, “Which type of books do you read?” Therefore, tell hobbies which you actually pursue because if Interviewer asks you any question pertaining to your hobbies then you can respond easily.
