Question 4 of 30
When have you received criticism? How do you handle criticism?
Professional Answers Preview
"I am good at receiving feedback from my team. A few months ago, during a performance review, my supervisor asked me to update my skills in SAP. I realized that since my promotion I didn't use the program as often anymore, and I was getting a bit rusty. I was sure to practice it in the coming days and was back to a more than acceptable standard shortly after."
Receiving feedback on the job is not a negative thing. Be sure to tell the hiring manager about a time when you have recently been coached by a supervisor or mentor. How did you take it, and how did you implement the criticism?
