Employability Skills: Skills You Need for a Job

Employability Skills: Skills You Need for a Job
Excellent for all of us.

What are Employability Skills?

Employability skills are those skills necessary for getting, keeping and being successful in a job.
They are the skills and attitudes that enable employees to get along with their colleagues, to make critical decisions, solve problems, develop respect and ultimately become strong ambassadors for the organisation.
Employability or ‘soft skills’ are the foundation of your career building blocks and they are frequently referenced in the media as lacking in school-leavers, graduates and those already in employment.  Organisations spend a lot of time and money training staff, not in job specific areas but in general and basic skills.
In times of high unemployment, employers have more choice of applicants and will favour those with well-rounded employability skills.

Different roles require different skill sets and abilities. The skills covered by SkillsYouNeed, outlined below, are desirable across all employment sectors.
