Changing business environment has brought about a paradigm shift in employer-employee relationship. This in turn has led to changes in the meaning of employment that is, from gainful employment to employability. This paper presents an overview of the concept of employability and explains the development of an instrument. It undertakes an exploratory factor analysis (EFA) and confirmatory factor analysis (CFA) of the employability skills scale with a sample of 348 respondents. Both the EFA and CFA yielded a 19-items six factor model. The model emerged as the perfect fit on various fit indices. This scale could be used as a measure of employability skills among respondents who apply for jobs in various business organizations.
