CollegeGrad.com presents "IQ and EQ in Your Interview." Watch this video to learn how to succeed in your job interview.
Hi, everyone. I'm Brian Krueger with CollegeGrad.com and this is The Job Search Minute. Interviewing is seldom about your intelligence quotient. Yes, it helps, especially with Case questions. But the interview usually has much more to do with your E Quotient. What is your E Quotient? It is your emotional quotient, or EQ, also referred to as emotional intelligence. Research has show that those with a high EQ outperform those with a high IQ in workplace. So interviewers are trained to look for EQ competencies such as motivation, interpersonal communication, optimism, and conflict management. While you cannot markedly change your IQ, you can change your EQ. Focus on building positive EQ behaviors into your life so that you can answer EQ questions with specific EQ examples.
