When a recruiter asks "what are your top 3 strengths?" I have trouble interpreting the question. I don't believe something as nebulous as a persons strengths can be effectively ordered. A suggestion from a Google search is to pick any 3 skills they are looking for in the job description that I have. Is this a good strategy, to pick any 3?
For example in a small portion of a job posting it has
What you would bring:
• Proficient in web development using Drupal • Experience with basic server administration tools such as: Active Directory, Group Policies, Network Shares
• Experience with Windows Deployment Services and Linux Bash scripting
• Ability to work independently or as a team
So would I really just quote 3 of these points when answering the question? e.g. "my top 3 skills are Drupal, Linux Bash scripting and working independently and as part of a team"
One thing that confuses me is what type of granularity are they looking for. For example Drupal in general or something specific like creating device specific displays?
