While macro-economists are typically interested in industry data in order to measure GDP, track total payroll employment, or build input-output economic models, occupation data is more in the domain of labor market experts. Occupation data is often more useful for the more “human” side of economics—to answer questions about education, training, and re-employment programs.
Recent survey data from Strada Education Network demonstrates that Americans increasingly prioritize education that is skill-specific and work-relevant. In this period of disruptive transformation, institutions that adapt to these evolving trends will have the best chance of maintaining strong enrollment. That’s why we created SkillsMatch – a powerful new way to help lifelong learners identify and fill skill gaps so they can achieve their goals.
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!
No one knows your programs (and the jobs they prepare students for) quite like you do. That’s why Analyst allows you to customize CIP-SOC mappings, adding or removing occupations to ensure that your reports accurately reflect the career pathways that are relevant for your programs’ graduates. And now, it’s easier than ever to manage and share these mappings across teams! Read the update here and check out the video walkthrough to learn more.
Emsi is pleased to relaunch Emsi Skills, a site created late in 2019 dedicated to helping organizations access and apply hard-to-use skills data. Our goal with Emsi Skills is to create a common language between 1) people looking for the right work, 2) educators looking to align curriculum with labor market realities, and 3) businesses looking for people with the right skills.
