Fahrenheit Executive Shares Emotional Intelligence Knowledge with PRNEWS

“A candidate’s resume doesn’t tell the whole story. Emotional intelligence (EI) is not quantifiable on a CV but it has been identified as the number one quality you need in a new employee,” writes PRNEWS Group author Eileen Simonson Hiebler.

To learn more about the subject, Hiebler turned to Fahrenheit Advisors Senior Recruiting Consultant, Sarah Gobble for her story.

Gobble began by clarifying what EI is, then explained how to gauge emotional intelligence during the recruiting process. 

Gobble reports that “inexperienced interviewers fall into the trap of asking a question, listening to the answer and then moving on without probing or clarifying the candidate’s answers. I find when you probe and make them explain themselves you get what you are really looking for.”
