When you've never really had to do that in a job....
What sort of menial things could I big up tos how this?
you'll get the job that way
If so, talk about managing workload, essays etc, how you had to employ good time management skills
take that seriously though? I mean, doesn't everyone put that?
don't worry about it. just say that you had a heavy workload in your last job...
your workload and think: what has the most imminent deadline? are there any deadlines that could be postponed? is there any work that be delegated?
and then i said that if necessary i would have to be flexible with working hours. or something.
not helpful. at all.
one thing before another. For example, 'I went for a poo first, THEN called my mother, as I don't think she'd have appreciated the sound of my following through live on the phone'.
word for word
that in a job
even when faced with just 2 things to do you have to chose which to do first, just big it up
"I was often entrusted with long-term projects and given responsibility for using my judgement to effectively complete them whilst turning my attentions to other duties at busier times"?
answer to the prioritising workloads question.
I was asking what you thought :)
That's it, isn't it?
"to complete them effectively" though.
Part of this job is also "high attention to written detail" :P
Just send them a link to your DiS profile, saying "I post this much and still get all my work done. Hire me!"
It depends on your cv really.
I think bigging up any time critical jobs - be it daily or monthly etc.
Answering 'customer' queries by phone letter. For example, in my old job we had to prioritise queries from internal and external sources; deciding on which one needed to be solved now/which one would require more of our time. This also meant communicating our timeframe for resolution to the respective parties.
