Employability is a major issue today as well as a condition for economic growth, and international experience is regarded as a means to accomplishing aspects of this.
Employability represents a complex concept, involving not only each individual's characteristics, skills, attitudes and motivation, but also other external factors which lie beyond the scope of education and training policy, such as labour-market regulations, demography, the structure of the economy and the overall economic situation (Council of the European Union 2012).
There are many definitions of employability: it is understood to be a broad range of skills and competences necessary to function in a working environment and to enable one to succeed in the workplace. Also, employability refers to a person's capability for gaining and maintaining employment. For individualS, employability depends on the knowledge, skills and abilities they possess. The Council of Europe defined employability as a combination of factors which enable individuals to progress towards or enter employment, to stay in employment and to progress throughout their careers. This set of achievements—skills, understandings and personal attributes—make graduates more likely to gain employment and to be successful in their chosen occupations, and this in turn benefits graduates themselves, the workforce, the community and the economy (Pegg et al. 2012).
The present topic aims to reveal the relevance of employability, how do employability skills and competences improve, the effects of students mobility and its relationship to employability, the impact of Erasmus actions on employability.
