If you didn't know this already there are three things that make you employable;
The first is your skill. Every employer sets the bar at a high competency and a range of related skills but these are not just academic.
The second is how you fit in the team. Great chemistry is fundamental.
Lastly, perhaps more importantly, is how much you enjoy your work. Someone that is wholly engaged in what they do and committed to producing the best results is obviously a good catch.
Your softer skills are more often than not what will set you apart. Emotional intelligence, insight into ones own behaviour and the willingness to learn have never been more crucial.
