Let’s say your institution is considering a new program. One of the things you’ll need to do is assess whether or not there’s demand in the market. Where do you start?
Demand is so much more than a single datapoint. An occupation can have a high wage but the landscape could be flooded by competitors. Job postings could be growing dramatically while at the same time, actual hires are declining. See here for more on Why You Need More Than Job Postings Data to Make Informed Associate Degree Program Decisions.
It’s critical to look at the big picture. That’s exactly why we developed the Program Market Demand Report in Analyst. It compiles the most relevant education, job postings, and occupation data into one place to give you a comprehensive picture of the labor market demand related to a program. Simply pick your program(s) of choice and region, and the report will automatically connect to relevant data using our CIP (program) to SOC (occupation) mapping.
A few highlights from the report:
- Regional graduates and job openings
- Job postings vs. hires
- Wages, growth, and total jobs for target occupations
- Top companies posting for jobs
- Top skills, certifications, and job titles mentioned in job postings
This new report will continue to grow and develop as we introduce new data and functionality in Analyst. Because this new report uses our job postings data, it’s only available to those who have access to our Job Posting Analytics.
