Interviewers occasionally ask applicants questions about prioritization and organization. So check out my example answer to the interview question: “How do you stay organized?“
Other questions that require a similar answer are “How do you keep yourself organized at work?” OR “What techniques and tools do you use to keep yourself organized?”
The reason why interviewers ask this question is to hear what kind of systems, techniques or software tools someone uses to remain organized. In the end, they seek candidates that can handle a large workload and hectic work schedules. Down below you can find a perfect example answer:
√ Do share your organization and time management strategies. Show that you’ve a system in place and can manage unforeseen large workloads or tackle hectic work weeks.
X Don’t sound too rigid or nitty-gritty. It’s very important to come across as a flexible candidate that is able to adapt to unforeseen circumstances.
