What are your Greatest Strengths and What are Your Weaknesses?

STRENGTHS :

That would be my ability to write efficient code and deliver projects on time, even if the deadlines are near.

By habit, I check all my codes for bugs, ensuring that the work I submit can be implemented without delay.

WEAKNESSES :

I like to make sure that my work is perfect, so I tend to perhaps spend a little too much time checking it. However, I've come to a good balance by setting up a system to ensure everything is done the first time correctly.

I used to wait until the last minute to set appointments for the coming week, but I realized that scheduling in advance makes much more sense.

Sometimes, I spend more time than necessary on a task or take on task personally that could easily be delegated to someone else. Although I've never missed a deadline, it is still an effort for me to know when to move on to the next task, and to be confident when assigning others work.


What is your dream job?

(For a Web developer position)

I have always keen on the ever-changing world of websites and the work that goes behind in creating them. Ideally, I would like to work full-time at a place where I can release my own Website on the Internet in the future.


When can you start?

Now - I can start immediately.

Need some time - while I would be eager to begin soon, it also depends on when you need me to start. When are looking for whomsoever you hire to begin work?


Are you comfortable with late night and weekend shifts?

Yes - If there is an immediate need or an urgency, I would be ready to support the organisaton.

No - I am comfortable with it once in a while, but would normally prefer maintaining a work-life balance.


How Do You Handle Pressure?

Pressure is essential to me. When there are a lot of assignments to work on in order to meet the deadlines, this is "good pressure" for me. That helps me to stay motivated and do well .

Although multiple assignments can be quite stressful at times, however, I'm good at balancing things. Once upon a time in my college, I had my semester exams aligned with my final year project. But, I broke down my tasks in a scheduled manner and did well in both of them . Thus , I avoided unwanted stress.


What is your proudest Accomplishment ?

I'm proud of my work in my recent internship. Here, I got a chance to develop a Website. I also got a chance to lead the project after a team member quit.

Though beyond the scope of my internship, it became a great opportunity to learn and shoe what I'm capable of. I was able to deliver the website on time and have deployed it on the Internet.

It currently has 25,000 users and over 100 four or five-star reviews. I can send you the URL if you're interested.


Would you be willing to travel/relocate for the job?

Yes - "I feel this job role will provide me with a lot of opportunities , so I would definitely relocate if required."

No - "I would love to be a part of this company.However,I will be unable to relocate at this point of time due to some ill-circumstances but will definitely considerrelocation in near future."

How would you overcome a difficult situation?

Situation:
