Deadline driven environments are a breeze for you as an accounting clerk! Planning and organization are key for any environment, and the interviewer simply wants to hear that you are not daunted by it. Begin by sharing an example of a deadline driven environment you have been a part of; it can even be a school setting if you are a recent graduate! Share where you were employed (or were a student), what types of deadlines you had to meet, and how you approached the tasks. Mention what organizational tools you utilized, and be sure to mention how successful you were in handling the multi-tasking deadline environment.
