"I am very goal-oriented and like to know the expectations on me on a yearly, quarterly, monthly, weekly, and daily basis. I will take the goals given to me and first organize them in order of importance. Then, I will break these tasks down, starting with the most urgent, figuring out what I need to accomplish daily to exceed these goals. In my current role, I use helpful tools such as Monday and Trello to keep myself and my team on track."
"When I first started university, I found that I quickly became disorganized. I was flustered when it came to deadlines, meetings, and my extracurricular schedule. I began to lean on tools such as my iCal, and an app called Evernote, which helped me to capture and prioritize my ideas, projects, and to-do lists. Now, nothing falls through the cracks! I plan to approach my work deadlines in the same manner."
