      1st Answer Example

      "I stay organized by using my organizer and prioritizing throughout the day. During my career, many great technological advances have occurred. Having always taken notes by hand and keeping a written to do list has evolved into me using an iPad to help keep my organized each day and week."

      Entry Level

      "I am a meticulous planner by nature so I keep close tabs on all of my patients that are scheduled by 15 minute blocks of time. By doing this, I am able to build in administrative time and also time for me to unwind in the midst of a busy day."

      Experienced

      "As an experienced Physical Therapist in a very busy setting, our schedulers are my first line of defense to help keep me organized through the work days. I am in consistent communication with them on my availability for the coming weeks and my patient schedule is always coordinated well. For myself, I utilize my email calendar to schedule any tasks outside of patient care like the committees that I sit on with my employer."

      "In a busy working environment like ours, you have to stay organized in order to make the most out of your valuable time and also to prevent any sort of setbacks that could interrupt your progress. What I do to keep my self organized is having to-do lists on both daily and weekly basis in order to keep track of my tasks at any given time and make any adjustments if necessary."

      Where do you keep these to-do lists? On a phone, tablet, in an app, or a notepad? Give the interviewer the full picture. Be careful to avoid "you" statements and keeping your answer personal (the first sentence).

      "In a busy working environment like mine, I have to stay organized to make the most out of my time and also to prevent any setbacks that could interrupt my progress. What I do to keep my self organized is keep daily and weekly to-do lists on the Evernote app on my phone."
