what are desirable attributes in employees?
Definitions of employability skills range from a vague notion of having
something to do with preparing for a first job, through to very precise lists of specific skills, and on to employability being seen as a learning process.
The range of different definitions and the contexts in which they are used
ultimately lead to confusion.....

Employability means what it says – it’s about having the skills needed to perform well at work.

Employability development has three aspects:

The development of employability attributes
The development of self-promotional and career management skills
A willingness to learn and reflect on learning.
Definition 1
Employability is a set of attributes, skills and knowledge that all labour market participants should possess to ensure they have the capability of being effective in the workplace – to the benefit of themselves, their employer and the wider economy. There are eight top employability skills:

Self management
Team working
Problem solving
Communication – application of literacy
Business awareness
Customer care
Application of numeracy
Application of ICT.
