When asked the job interview question "What have you learned from your mistakes?" be sure to give examples that turn a negative (a mistake) into a postive.
Examples of good responses include:
- I think one of the most important things I've learned is persistence. Not to give up too soon, because the solution is probably right in front of me.
- I have learned to give every person a second chance, because first impressions can often be misleading.
- I used to think that there was one best solution to a problem, but I've learned that that kind of thinking limits the possibility of great success.
