The interviewer is setting you a big trap to fall into. The way to fend off this question is by saying that you don’t think that you have ever had a ‘greatest failure’.

So go on to talk about some minor failure that you have experienced – perhaps a particular project that did not go well or a piece of work that was not up to your usual high standards.

One way to avoid the trap would be to say something like: Sure, I have made mistakes, but I don’t think that I have any real regrets.
