Abstract: Emotional Intelligence (EI) can be a potential determinant of an individual’s employability. EI questionnaires are commonly used as a tool of the selection process for employers today. Other than using traditional EI tests, employers are also engaging in purposeful usage of social networking sites (SNS-es) in their hiring decisions. This study aims to find out if there is a relationship between an individual’s EI and the way he/she uses Facebook. The survey was administered to undergraduates from three local universities. The survey results showed that high EI individuals’ Facebook usage reflects proper image management, content creation and interactions that are appealing to employers. Future undergraduates can make use of this study as a guide to manage their Facebook account and employers can use this to identify high EI individuals.
