Emotional Intelligence, or EQ, is considered the best predictor of success, even more so than intelligence (IQ). In today’s competitive and uncertain world, EQ competencies are more important than ever to get hired and to move up in an organization. Career practitioners discussed how emotional intelligence affects the job search during multiple events the week of November 12-16, 2018.
