As we consider what parts of the labor market thrived in 2016 and what will continue to gain momentum in 2017, it’s hard to miss the demand for data scientists: people who are, according to SAS, “part mathematician, part computer scientist, and part trend spotter” and “straddle both the business and IT worlds” to analyze complex business problems using large datasets.
A new study by EMSI and CareerBuilder shows that earnings among wage-and-salary employees have decreased 0.1% since 2010—a trend that could stall economic growth if people are less willing to spend money on goods and services. Nonetheless, the study finds that wages are picking up in certain sectors.
In the United States, the 55+ workforce grew by 8.3 million from 2001 to 2014, according to a new report from CareerBuilder using EMSI data.

Recently CareerBuilder released a list of 10 “hot jobs” in the Toronto labour market, using EMSI data to pinpoint occupations that were adding jobs. We thought we’d look closer at the data.
EMSI’s compatibility index has valuable applications for workforce development boards, higher education institutions, economic development organizations — and private companies on the hunt for candidates. We walk through an example in this post.
Although hiring is expected to remain stable in the second quarter, companies plan to add fewer workers than they did this time last year, according to the CareerBuilder job forecast.
In this article, we define what strategic workforce planning involves, provide an example, and discuss how companies can use labor market data to more effectively manage their pipeline of talent.
To help workers identify hot temp opportunities, CareerBuilder and EMSI released a list of occupations that are hiring temporary workers at an accelerated rate.
We are pleased to introduce a new report called the Student Résumé Analysis that will help colleges better understand the performance of past students. We are also excited about this effort because it is one of the first fruits of our relationship with CareerBuilder.
