Organisational skills

Organisational skills are one of the most important professional skills you can develop. Companies are constantly on the lookout for organised and capable professionals. Organisation is a highly desirable skill for job seekers of all ages. Whether it is through colour coding, post-it-notes, online calendars, physical folders, there are a million small tips and tricks to stay organised. 

Physical Organisation: Having good physical organisation is important to success. This doesn’t mean that you have to have the most organised desk or work station at all times, but making a point to clean up the clutter once a week can make a big difference. Building a habit of throwing away old paper and cleaning up the supplies you have will ultimately help your overall organisational skills.

Mental Organisation: This is often the most difficult aspect of organisation. It is best to prioritize and make to-do lists if you want. These things can help you keep on track with all of your projects. Figure out how you work the best, whether that’s by multi-tasking or focusing on one project until it’s complete. Everyone works differently, so don’t be surprised if you find yourself working differently than your colleagues; if it works for you and help keeps you organized, that’s okay.

Time Management: Good organisational skills are all about making good use of your time. Becoming more efficient in your tasks will help you get work done more effectively. Keeping a calendar of all meetings and even scheduling time to work on certain projects can help with your time management. Managing your time well will round out your organisational skills and help you land the role you want!
