How do you keep track of your day-to-day tasks and activities?
The interviewer wants evidence that you prioritize productivity and organization. The goal of your response is to describe how your time management and task prioritization skills align with the hiring company's expectations.
What to Avoid
Avoid giving a response that alludes to you being a disorganized person. It might be tempting to make a self-deprecating statement like, 'Oh, if only I could stay on track every day!' Instead, show confidence in your focus and be ready to provide specific details of your methods for staying organized and productive.
This question is an excellent opportunity to discuss the tools you use to keep your day on track. Some of the most common tools used in the workplace include CRMs like Salesforce, Oracle, or HubSpot. You might also use Trello, Asana, or Basecamp project management tools. Perhaps you use an app like Evernote or pay for a service such as Monday. Maybe you take an old-school approach and keep notes and to-do lists in a notebook or ReMarkable device that you carry with you everywhere. Whatever your method, be ready to take the interviewer through your strategy for maximizing time and keeping yourself organized.
