Employability is defined as a psycho-social construct comprised of three dimensions: adaptability, career identity and human and social capital. Some scholars deal with employability from a person-centered perspective, independently from one’s employment status. It means that one can be employable without necessarily being in employment. The psycho-social model has been applied in helping individuals to cope with unemployment as it can be used to assist them to recognize that their employability can be self-improved, despite the temporary absence of employment. Starting from this perspective, the aim of this paper is to explore the employability in a cluster of unemployed workers. Employability was found out to be positively related to job search behavior.
Keywords: Employability, job search behavior, unemployment
