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.

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.
