Why are Employability Skills Important

Today, the job market is more competitive in an altogether different sense. Along with subject matter expertise, employers are now looking for employability skills as essential traits in their potential employees.

One reason for this is the ever-changing nature of technology. Technology is evolving every day, and if you are unable to upskill to stay relevant in your industry, you will inevitably fall behind your peers.
