Top women work hard and emotional intelligence helps you get a job

A couple of snippets today. A new study finds top women tend to have the following qualities - 'strong self-belief, willingness to work hard, perseverance, resilience and the need to strive for autonomy'. (my emphasis) Oh and they are also smart! http://www.theage.com.au/national/education/top-women-have-much-in-common-20110314-1bubg.html Your jobsearch will also be helped along if you can show you have emotional intelligence (EI) http://www.theage.com.au/national/education/is-emotional-intelligence-as-important-as-iq-20110314-1bub5.html.
But you didn't need a couple of formal studies to tell you that, did you!! Seems to me a bit of effort and sensitivity doesn't go astray no matter who you are... : )
