WHY IS THE HIRING MANAGER ASKING YOU THE INTERVIEW QUESTION, “HOW DO YOU RESPOND TO CRITICISM?”
Well, the interviewer is asking you this tough interview question for 2 reasons.
REASON #1. The employer clearly wants to hire someone who is prepared to accept constructive criticism in a mature and open way. Anybody who reacts negatively to criticism will not be a good fit for the team.
REASON #2. Those employees who view constructive criticism as helpful are more likely to be high-achievers. Therefore, if you are not prepared to seek ways to use criticism to your advantage, you won’t get hired.
3 VERY IMPORTANT TIPS FOR ANSWERING THE TOUGH INTERVIEW QUESTION, ‘HOW DO YOU RESPOND TO CRITICISM?’
TIP #1. Tell the interviewer you are always OPEN TO CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM because you view it as an opportunity for you to learn and improve. This is important because it tells the interviewer you are a mature and professional employee.
TIP #2. In your answer to the ‘how do you respond to criticism?’ interview question, tell the interviewer that you view criticism as feedback. Make sure you use the word FEEDBACK in your answer because this will definitely resonate positively with the hiring manager.
TIP #3. Is to make sure you demonstrate in your answer that you always EVALUATE the criticism before acknowledging your faults and weaknesses and taking action to improve.
“HOW WOULD YOU DEAL WITH A DIFFICULT CO-WORKER?” EXAMPLE ANSWER!
“I respond to criticism with professionalism, with an open mind, and with the attitude that there is always room for improvement. When someone criticizes my work, I will LISTEN carefully to what they have to say, I will be polite and thank them for their comments, and I will then EVALUATE what their intentions are and how I can use their FEEDBACK to improve. I never take criticism personally and I am the type of employee who always acknowledges my faults and weaknesses before taking positive steps to improve.”
