Abstract
This chapter outlines the fundamental perspective of employability, considering push and pull factors that stimulate graduates to establish their careers. Employability is about graduates' readiness, their ability to land their first job, keep it, and find a new one, if necessary, as well as their flexibility in terms of skills, knowledge, and attitude to the demands of the economy. The responsibility for establishing prosperous professions increasingly falls on the shoulders of employees. Employment relations are more unpredictable than in the past due to the status of the job market today. The literature addresses two kinds of self-perceived employability: the first is structural, and the second is personal. The current study outlined external factors that affect graduates' judgements of their structural self-perceived employability are labelled as push factors. The person's perception of their own employability is dependent on their own characteristics, skills, and attitudes are discussed as pull factors.
