It depends- who’s doling out the critique?

Get a different job. If your skin is that thin then this is not the career for you. Seriously. In fact any sales job won't work for you. Also, make sure you have good emotional support; friends, family, or even a dog. Someone who can remind you that you don't suck. Sometimes that's all it takes to break a vicious cycle of sucking. Frankly, criticism is hard to listen to, but finding someone who cares enough to give honest constructive criticism is golden. Some of the best advice I ever received was some of the hardest words to actually hear - but those people are now some of my most trusted friends. Turns out I really was being sort of an asshole! (Me? Really? Yup!) Now quit being such a dainty little crybaby and go make some sales. 😉

Get over it!

My boss is very close with the leader of our group so it’s unlikely that she’ll get fired.  me and my other manager are going to go to HR today to discuss what was said. They were sexist and racist comments.
