As COVID-19 accelerates the shift towards education that is skill-specific and work-relevant, institutions that adapt to the evolving needs and preferences of learners will have the best chance of maintaining strong enrollment. That’s why we created SkillsMatch. In this webinar, Emsi product manager, Lendl Meyer demonstrates how institutions can use SkillsMatch to engage current and prospective learners with skill-based recommendations for education and work.
While much remains uncertain about the long-term economic impacts of COVID-19, we can be confident that colleges and universities will have a crucial role to play in their community’s resilience and recovery. To help your institution think about how to prepare for the opportunities ahead, Emsi hosted a webinar with Luke Jankovic (EVP of Higher Education) and Dr. Stuart Muller (Sr. Higher Education Consultant). In this post, we recap their discussion and provide links to free resources.
Due to the COVID-19 shutdown of the economy, millions of workers have been displaced and will be forced to seek either temporary work outside their current field or entirely new types of work. And each one is wondering, what can I do now? To answer this, they need to be able to describe the skills they have that will transfer well to other jobs and how to add that critical information to their resumes and profiles. That’s why we created Resume Optimizer.
The COVID-19 crisis and ensuing economic shutdown are like a tsunami. Right now, we’re all trapped in our houses, but sooner or later the water will recede and we’ll be cleaning up a huge mess. How can you be ready? Let’s give people hope and prepare ourselves to make smart decisions for that time!
Recent events have pushed virtually all of higher education to move their programs online–including colleges who hadn’t planned on making that move for quite some time. This rapid shift to remote learning has highlighted some of the distinct advantages of online programs, but it has also created new challenges for those who provide advising and offer student support services.
Online programs present an exciting opportunity for institutions to expand their reach and serve new markets. But they also raise unique questions when it comes to program alignment, employer engagement, and how to focus marketing efforts. To help your institution answer these questions, Emsi hosted a webinar with Aaron King, Program Director at the University of Florida’s Office of Distance Learning. King shared how his team uses a blend of traditional and real-time labor market data to guide program development, employer engagement, and marketing strategy.
