    Tell me about your organizational skills in a work environment.

      As an archivist, you must be organized with your work at all times. Talk to the interviewer about your organizational skills in a work environment by providing an example of your capabilities.

      Rachelle's Answer

      "I believe excellent organizational skills are essential to perform the duties of an archivist successfully. If I have to archive numerous documents in a short period, I prioritize in order of their respective deadlines. I will use lists to keep track of upcoming duties and a calendar to keep track of deadlines. Regarding the records, I will ensure to keep different records in their respective places to facilitate the organizational process."

      Rachelle's Answer

      "I understand that organization is a high priority in this industry. While obtaining my bachelor's degree in library science, we learned a great deal about the importance of a well-organized project. Do you use any particular software to keep your projects organized here? I was trained on LOCKSS and am confident that I will be able to learn any software programs quickly."

      Rachelle's Answer

      "I have stellar organization skills and am also well-trained in numerous software programs for archivists. These include ArchivesSpace, LOCKSS, and PRONOM. In addition to these, I keep an organized team by utilizing project management software such as Trello."
