“Time Management”, a skill not just a behaviour

Time management is a skill every graduate must have and like all skills it must be learned. It doesn’t ‘just happen’. Hopefully you will have developed good organizational and time management skills while you are at school.

All employers are looking for candidates who have good time management skills and there is no better or more appropriate way to demonstrate them than during your job search and the interview process. You can show a potential employer you have these skills in many different ways:

1. Calling ahead to confirm your interview the day before the interview

2. Arriving 15 minutes ahead of your appointed interview time

3. Following up with a ‘Thank you’ note in a timely way after the interview

Simple behaviours? Yes.

Behaviours that will not go unnoticed.
