Today’s market is more competitive than ever. The economy is growing at a steady rate and companies are expanding just as rapidly, which means there are more mid- and top-level management positions that need to be filled quickly.

Another approach you also need to consider is improving your emotional intelligence. According to a recent infographic by the University of Maryland, hiring managers actively seek candidates with high emotional intelligence for managerial positions.
