Your employability is your security and improving soft skills is key.
Whatever you work at, aim to be very good at it and keep improving. Writers at the turn of the century predicted a new career in which our future security would be dependent on developing key characteristics, specifically employability and resilience.
They are still right. Employability has evolved to encompass a range of 21st century skills - self-direction to navigate change, adaptability to accept the challenges of change, inventive thinking for innovation and creativity, and continuous learning to manage the complexity of technology and globalisation, and keep up with new tasks.
