People often worry about discussing their weaknesses or their biggest mistakes in an interview. Of course, you want to make a good impression, totally understandable.
However, being honest about the challenges you have been through and how you have come out positive on the other side, can make you the better candidate.
Think about it this way - if your new employer hits a similar 'bump in the road, they'll be better equipped with staff who have experienced it all before.
Better yet, remember to say how you have learned from your weaknesses and see it as a strength. Why? Because you now know how to do things differently. Give examples of how you would have approached it next time.
By preparing for this question you can gear yourself up and turn from a good candidate into a great candidate.
We all make mistakes and learning from them is how we grow so don't be afraid to share what you've learned.

Wilk said that if the candidate naturally talks about "things that they would have done differently," that's a good sign because it shows a "high degree of self-awareness." She especially wants to see the candidate share some "reflection or a postmortem that they may have done after the situation, how they've taken that and applied it into future situations."
