Employability refers to the ability to enter, stay and progress in the labour market and secure paid employment that is adequate to one’s competences, qualifications, expectations, preferences and social context. While individual skills and adaptability enhance employability, employability needs to be assessed relative to the prevailing market conditions, notably whether there are adequate jobs with decent working conditions. An individual’s employability depends on the employability of other individuals as well as on the institutions and opportunities in a given labour market. The cumulation of experiences and competencies is a significant factor of employability
