When it comes to hiring, what do you look for? In a new CareerBuilder survey, it seems employers are changing what they look for in prospective employees.
Thirty-four percent of hiring managers said they are placing greater emphasis on emotional intelligence (EI) when hiring and promoting employees. Seventy-one percent said they value emotional intelligence in an employee more than IQ.
Emotional intelligence is a general assessment of a person’s ability to control emotions, to sense, understand and react to others’ emotions, and manage relationships.
