I reported a few minor inconveniences I suffered due to a project, to my senior, he critiqued me for it. But in his critique, he also provided the solution to the question, if it was reported to me by my juniors. This hence proved to be the most valuable lesson to me till date.

I think criticism is good for those people who want to become successful in their profession because if some criticized your work you should thank him because indirectly it helps you to find your mistakes. When I joined in my on new organizations everything was new for me and I have done a lot of mistakes while working. But thanks to my team they have criticized me so that I have become good and strong team member.

First of all, nothing is perfect in this world. So I never expect it from my work also. & About criticising. Everyone is different with their own set of values & beliefs. So criticism should be there. And also taking it positively gives yourself scope for improvement!

Please learn to read the question: it was asked to tell a situation when your work was criticized, and you (many others) answered by defining constructive criticism. I interview grad students, if someone answer me this, I would reject and comment the candidate do not understand simple English and hence will not be able to understand project requirement.

An answer should be something like following:

I was working in pure research (or academia) prior to my joining a new role in product development team for enterprise solution. As I had no experience in implementing enterprise solution, team was not satisfied to wot my work. I understand that the criticism is to improve my skills, so I took the initiate and learned continuously, the team saw my commitment and helped me in improving.

Yeah, good question sir. This is a major problem during working hours in the organization. I learned that principle of management. Sir, if I know very well about some way to get a success among them, I want to argue their criticized.

Well, the most critical time of my work was when I was supposed to work with two printers as an inventory management clerk and on that faithful day, I met only one functional on night duty. While printing that night (Load List & Invoice) on the same printer there was the network problem and the printer was also jamming but with constant persevering, I was able to meet up with the cut off time of printing.

Criticism to me is an opportunity to improve your shortcomings. The criticism gives us the chance to polish yourself more in terms of skills, expertise, and competencies. If we have gut nature to accept the criticism we can face any challenge easily because we keep on improving our self, putting more efforts to deliver the quality. I was criticized for quality with quantity. But with time I kept on improving myself, started processing hefty work daily without listening anything. Because I changed my belief system on it that I can't to it. To do anything you have to be assertive, destroy any belief system about you. With the gut feeling just keep on doing work with confidence and an honesty. With that, you will be noticed definitely.

I have never got too much criticized by my work or my seniors. If you are doing your work in an appropriate manner then you will never get a chance to get criticized. But sometimes it happens when you get criticized, if you are taking it positively then it means you are improving your work and next time you will never get fail down in your work.

Criticism to me is one way to improve myself from a mistake, this gives lesson for us to correct things. I try to see criticism as an opportunity to improve my work.

Constructive criticism is an important part of professional growth, and this is a good chance to show your employer you are striving to be the best and are open to improvement. Even though receiving criticism is going to feel lousy, show the interviewer that you are happy to put your ego to one side, and that you listen to and act upon feedback and advice.

If you don't use criticism as an agent for change when it happens, then those vicious teeth of criticism will just keep biting and biting into perfection.

I am an optimistic person. There was situations where in the earlier stages of my career I was criticized for the mistakes I made. But I took it as a constructive feedback, learnt to do the job better the next time. When I joined as a customer service executive in Cochin International Airport fresh from college, I found my job a bit confusing.

Because there was different system for different airline. So while checking the documents of the passengers I sometimes failed to check the documents properly before the went it the immigration I was criticized for the mistake. But I quickly learnt and perfected the job. Later I became the team leader and gave training to the new comers.

I did not remember any highly criticism in my work. But I have done many mistakes and I always learn from my mistakes. I would like to tell about one situation, when I was in 2nd year we had to prepare a presentation, at that time I had no knowledge about this presentation and all.

We were 4 members in a group and none of us know about this and I was the group leader then everyone told me to prepare it and I prepared it to some extend but it was not in the correct sequence so for me only our group couldn't score better.

Criticized is the way for success. As a fresher I have join the organization, which is totally a different culture from the college environment.

My boss criticize me on the daily basis, that you are not a suitable candidate from this role and you will not able to do the business, with in 5th month he has shifted me from his team to another team. The next month I have perform well in team handling.

Increasing productivity and all for which I have received the elite performance award, and the award was given by that person who has through me out from his team. All my team member are happy with this performance (it is a real life story).

So in brief criticized help the person/individual to hence the hidden potential. So take the criticism as feedback and work into it that will help to hence your personality.

Yes, everyone will face this kind of criticize in their work even I too face the same I have worked as a fresher I have been criticized for my job initially I have not accepted by myself but we can't able to argue with them that's the true thing.

So I have analysed my problem where I was lagging and next time I tried to correct when we are criticized by some one then one we will have the make the negative into positive.

Criticism always gives you an opportunity to correct or improve yourself because if there is no critics, you will work wrong for long without knowing it. I also would like to replace a word criticism to coach. If you are doing something wrong, coach will always correct you, but without the coach, might be you may wrong somewhere & you will not be corrected.

However I might have done small mistakes but mistakes make us perfect, I like getting feedback's and take it positively, always try to improve and not to repeat a mistake again.

I read and still remember this quotes until now "when you talks only repeating what you already know but by listening you may learn something new". Therefore, I'm taking the criticized as positive feedback where as human we can't cover all aspects at once so we need a partner, colleagues to stay and share their point of view to close the gap and maximize the result.
