The best approach is to give an example from your personal experience. Use something that occurred in a previous job or a time in school where you had to juggle many projects and deadlines. Talk about how you prioritize tasks. For example, do you maintain a to-do list by your desk or on your computer and add tasks as they come up? Do you use a planner on your phone or computer to manage the time spent on each task? Do you ask for help or delegate some of the tasks to make sure they get completed on time?
Take the interviewer through your process step by step. Explain your reasons for using that approach. Mention any time-management, organization, or problem-solving training or seminars you've attended. Tell them how you've applied what you learned to your own method of handling multiple tasks and deadlines efficiently.
