A few years ago, we published an article on the top states where the top-earning welders make the most money: which states boast the highest welder salaries? How much do welders make per hour in each state? The original version of our article turned out to be so popular, we decided to review the data and update it. Plus, with many people returning to higher education to upskill or change their field of work due to current economic upheavals, it’s good to remember that it doesn’t always take a four-year degree to land a good career and comfortable income.
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.
Medical device manufacturers in the US are shifting into overdrive to battle COVID-19. These manufacturers supply the tools that medical professionals and hospitals need both at home and around the globe, and play a crucial role in fighting the disease. In this analysis, we examine electromedical manufacturing, the critical sub-field of medical manufacturing that produces these ventilators, respiratory devices, and other equipment.
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.
Build a thriving economic ecosystem. Continuing the research that we first presented in The New Geography of Skills, we now show how speaking the common language of skills can bring educators, companies, and workforce/economic developers together to address the talent needs of a specific region or industry. By combining broad labor market data with more nuanced skills cluster data, we provide a snapshot of the existing strengths—and the shifting landscape—of a key regional industry and demonstrate how this data can inform local talent strategies.
