It's a mixture of both. What you know opens doors that wouldn't be opened if you didn't know whatever it is you studied. Doesn't mean your allowed in. That's the who you know part that comes into play.

Highly dependent on the type of job, as I'm sure has been said already. But yes, as you get higher-up the corporate ladder, high EQ is essential.

You typically don't want to be known at the office grinder who doesn't socialize. I know it all too well because I'm currently in that position I feel like.

What's rough is that I love working in my field, but it requires high EQ and socialization as part of the job itself. I often have conflicting perspectives on whether I should stay in the field or not, and whether I even want to advance high up long-term.

Being good at your job can only get you so far in terms of career advancement, typically Manager-level in what I've seen in my jobs.
