Problem Statement: The competitiveness of individuals in the labor market depends not only on their vocational competence;, but also on whether they have employability competences and whether they can continuously develop them. Employability competences must be such that the individual can find an appropriate job for himself/herself, can advance his/her career and can adapt to social, technological and organizational changes. However, research has indicated that employability competences of individuals are not well-suited to the business market. Hence the need to consider the varying points of view of those concerned in this issue.
