Weekly Tip #20: Is Your EQ (Emotional Intelligence) Good Enough to Get the Offer? What Your Interviewer is Really Looking For
Everyone who has made it to the face-to-face interview stage is qualified. The offer will go to the person best able to communicate their emotional intelligence. Even though you are being asked about experience and skills, the underlying question is “do I want to work with this person every day?”
- Emotional Intelligence is rooted in self-awareness. Listen carefully and ask thoughtful questions.
- Read the mood of the room and strive to put everyone at ease.
- Don’t use pretentious language, speak as if you were discussing a situation with a respected colleague.
- Avoid transparent self-promotion. Think comfortably confident.
