While there will always be job-specific skills that an employer is looking for, most employers will also want you to have some general skills. These general job skills are sometimes called "employability skills".
Having employability skills can help you get a job. They can also help you stay in a job and work your way to the top. If you score a job interview, chances are you'll be asked questions about your job-specific skills and your employability skills.
Surveys after surveys reveal the fact that a vast majority of arts & science, and engineering graduates are not job-ready because they do not have employability skills.
