Real Life Conversations with JT: Interview Ready edition

The backstory:  The back-to-school packet arrived in the mail last weekend and JT got word that there is a before-classes program from Juniors on resume-writing and interview practice.   We agree that he should attend the program and then I suggested that he think about answers to standard interview questions.  I offered a few for his consideration.

Me (as interviewer):  What is your greatest weakness?

JT:  I have no patience for idiots.

Me (now a nervous interviewer):  What is your greatest strength?

JT:  I’m not one of those idiots.

At that, I burst into laughter.  I’d hire him, but I am not your average employer.  Perhaps the workshop will help him to refine his answers.
