Employability has many definitions but they all share the core description of being able to earn your living. The key question is: if I lose my job today, will I be able to find a new job with a similar income quickly? For organisations it is important to have ‘employable’ employees. It makes them flexible and versatile. It is part of being a good employer. For employees that is of vital importance; if you don’t make sure you remain employable, you take the risk of a drop in income in the later stages of your career.
