Flash Friday: Describing how you handle feedback

You can run interview questions all day long with experienced professionals but understanding what interviewers are actually trying to gauge with their questions is truly preparing yourself.

How do you prepare to respond to this question: How do you handle critique?

This question is designed for you to respond with a story. Don’t just tell them but demonstrate that you understand:

  1. How to receive feedback from supervisors and peers
  2. How to use feedback as a means to grow professionally

The best way to prepare for this question is to have several narratives in your head. You do not want to sound rehearsed but this is a fairly common question and should not catch you off guard.
