Exceptional organization skills

Some people may hate organization, but for whatever reason, you love it. To you, the idea of organizing hundreds of emails into different categories and making sure they all get to the right people is… well… satisfying. You just feel better knowing everything is in the right place.

You also love to do lists and calendars. Throughout the day, you cross off items you’ve completed, make reminders for things you need to do later, and reshuffle priorities to make sure you’re working as efficiently as possible.

Always on time

You’re not just on time. You’re usually at least 10 minutes early.

If you have to find a new place, you scout it out the day before, making sure you know where it is so you don’t have to stress about it later. You also prepare as much as possible in advance, thinking about everything that could go wrong and figuring out what you’ll do about it.

In some ways, it’s just part of who you are. You like other people knowing they can count on you, and you do everything possible to make sure they can.

Comfortable with computers

No, you’re not Bill Gates, but you can work on a computer without screaming or feeling like you have to throw things.

You know how to use email. You can dig around with Google and research things. Maybe you even know Excel, PowerPoint, or other software.

Regardless, the idea of spending your day on the computer and learning how to do lots of new things doesn’t freak you out. In fact, you’re kind of excited about it.

Polished writer and speaker

Whenever you answer the phone or write an email, people can tell you’re well educated.

Not like an English butler or something, nothing like that. You just take pride in being articulate and saying and writing things the correct way.

You understand it affects the way people treat you. It also reflects on both you and your employer, so you always do your best to present yourself well.

Consistently upbeat

Whenever you’re at work, you always try to keep a positive attitude.

Sure, you have problems like everyone else, but you try to leave them at home and not let them affect you while you’re working.  It’s a matter of professionalism.

Down deep, you also enjoy encouraging other people. The better you can make other people feel around you, the better you feel yourself.
