  1. Employability

    Employability refers to a person's capability for gaining and maintaining employment. For individuals, employability depends on the knowledge, skills and abilities they possess, the way they present those assets to employers, and the context within which they seek work. As such employability is affected by both supply-side and demand-side factors which are often outside of an individual's control.
