Abstract: In the context of society's digital transformation, digital skills become a vital resource in all activity domains. The new ITCs have led to the restructuring of industries, which are constantly required to invest in re-technology to have a competitive edge. But the main challenge will be to reform the workforce who is a vital factor of production and must be adapt to new skills. Loss of workplace involves for unemployed either adapting to new job requirements, or implementing their own businesses, but most of them try to re-engage. The aim of this research was to evaluate the association of digital skills with employment among Romanian adults, 55-64 years old. The results show the findings that digital skills isn't a main contributor for the employability of seniors aged 55-64 years old, in 2009-2018 period.
