    How do you keep track of your day-to-day tasks and activities?

      How to Answer

      This question is an excellent opportunity for you to discuss the tools that you use to keep your day on track. Some of the most common tools used in the workplace include CRMs like Salesforce. Also, project management tools like Trello, Wrike, or Slack. Perhaps you use an app like Evernote or pay for a service such as Monday. Do you take an old-school approach and keep notes and to-do lists in a notebook that you carry with you everywhere? Whatever your method, be ready to walk the interviewer through your strategy for maximizing time and keeping yourself organized.

      Rachelle's Answer

      "I have always been a highly organized person, and I like to keep track of my tasks in a variety of ways. Once I have decided which tasks are most urgent, I will break them down into micro-tasks into a project management application called Asana. As I complete each task, I gain the satisfaction of crossing them off the app like a to-do list. I do not consider my day complete until all of my tasks are complete for that day."

      Rachelle's Answer

      "Traditionally, I am a paper and pen person, which means that I keep nearly everything I need to know and do, in my notebook. To become more up-to-date with the software and other systems available to me to maximize organization and time management, I have started to use a service called Monday. It's a more visual tool, which I appreciate. It's been wonderful so far, and I haven't missed a deadline or a task since I started using it!"

      "I am a big fan of a diary, notebook, excel spreadsheets, and CRM systems. I use it all to input my appointments, calls, ladder of adoption with my customers, and daily routine. I feel together these tools help structure the blueprint of my day in being successful."

      Cindy's Answer

      Good! Approaching this answer by showing the tools and techniques you use will help the interviewer understand how you'd stay on track, regardless of the task. However, explain why and how these tools help. Perhaps give an example that shows how you apply these tools.

      "I start by every Sunday, planning out and preparing for the week ahead. I use a daily planner to write down everything I need to complete for that day and then use google calendar specifically for work-related meetings. Regarding my notes and deals, I use Salesforce to stay organized, and EOD looks over all my work and makes any needed updates or changes."

      Rachelle's Answer

      It seems you are incredibly well organized and focused on your tasks at hand, as well as what is coming up. You offer up some nice details in your answer.
