Employability skills (ES) are important for effective and successful individual participation in the workplace. The main aims of the research were to identify important ES needed by graduates of Public Health Study Program Universitas Ahmad Dahlan (PHSP UAD) and to assess the achievement of the ES development that has been carried out by PHSP UAD. This study used a mixed method research with convergent design. Quantitative research was conducted with survey to graduates. Qualitative research was conducted with structured interviews to employers. Both data were analyzed separately and interpreted concurrently. Graduates and employers of PHSP UAD in broad outline were in line on the important ES needed in the workplace and the assessment of the achievement. Several ES consistently were considered important. The achievement of ES that were related to public health knowledge and its application were already high, meanwhile several important ES which are needed in the work place in the 21st century were still low. ES needed for graduates of PHSP UAD had been formulated. Curriculum revision is recommended to integrate ES into core academic activities to promote the development of ES,needed in the work place in the 21st century.
