You have to be very honest about such a question. Your answer has to be brief and to the point.You cannot tell a lie that your career has been flawless. Your answer reflecting a positive aspect where you have learned from your mistake will add an advantage to your answer. It is very common that you might fall short somewhere, you may make mistakes, it's human nature, but not all employers give a very positive gesture on that. There are people who find a learner in such situations and help them learn from the mistakes made. Here your answer would be stronger if you could add examples of your mistakes where you had a positive take-home effect.

Answer samples:

"I am a constant learner and prefer learning even from my mistakes. My mistakes in my career have made me more alert and confident in those situations. My knowledge has been enhanced and skills sharpened from mistakes."

My learning enhances discussions with seniors and experienced fellows in the field as well. I prefer to regularly upgrade myself with new courses and certifications and also attend job-related seminars & workshops.

20. Point out your biggest weakness.

The most tricky and obvious question to be asked in an interview is about one's weakness. One can never lie to this question.

If your answer to this question is like "no you do not have one", the interviewer is assured that you are lying.

A personal weakness description would put you in a false position. A mention of weakness may reveal a point which might not be beneficial, your employer would put you in stake. So look to mention a flaw that would reflect your good qualities rather.

For example:

I do not like sitting back idle, I am always into some kind of constant reading and upgrading.

I am not very fluent in communications and like to develop the same with more public speech  presentations at work.

These will definitely work to impress your interviewer. If you have not many career-related achievements, try mentioning some of your personal achievements where you can highlight your social skills like communication, teamwork, presentation.

22. What do you rate yourself in handling situations at stress and work pressure?

Your rating should be justified, not over marking nor underrating yourself. It could be harmful for you. Never say you get panicked easily. You may be very good and able in handling stress & pressure, just mention with examples. How you handled them, what were your key responsibilities and how you executed. Your answer would add stars if you mention cases where you were unable to handle such situations, you even sought expert advice & guidance where from you also learnt lessons, would simply showcase your inclination towards Betterment.

25. Who do you admire most in the airline industry?

"The people whom I find the most interesting and inspiring in the airline industry, without a doubt, would be the Wright brothers. Inventing, building, and flying the worlds' first airplane is a remarkable accomplishment that would have required a lot of smarts and bravery. May I ask who you admire most in the industry?”

26. Aside from your experience working in the airline industry, do you have experience in other customer service based roles?

"I feel that the best way to earn the trust of my co-workers is to be helpful, always do what I promise, and be honest with them at all times. Strong relationships have to be built on these principles."

30. Think about a difficult boss, professor or coworker. What made him or her difficult? How did you successfully interact with this person?

"I once worked at a locally owned shop where the owner was very demanding. When the owner would walk into the store, employees would announce over their headset system that the owner was in the building, so that everyone felt prepared for his entrance into their department. The owner had great intentions; however, his people skills were a little rough. I could see that he meant well, and I recognized that he wanted to do a lot of good things. When we interacted, I always took his feedback with the understanding that he didn't mean things as harshly as they came out."
