Today, colleges and universities can access an unprecedented amount of information about the jobs learners want and the skills employers need. But applying this data effectively requires a clear vision for the why, how, and what of labor market analytics in higher education. To help provide this vision, Emsi hosted a webinar led by chief innovation officer Rob Sentz. Rob shared how institutions can and should use data about the economy and their alumni to improve their value and relevance in 2020 and beyond. Check out the recap to see a recording of the webinar and links to relevant research!
Today, colleges and universities can access an unprecedented amount of information about the jobs learners want and the skills employers need. But applying this data effectively requires a clear vision for the why, how, and what of labor market analytics in higher education. To help provide this vision, Emsi is hosting a webinar on Thursday, January 9 at 2:00pm ET (11am PT) lead by chief innovation officer Rob Sentz. Join us to learn how your institution can (and should) use data about the economy and your alumni to improve your value and relevance in 2020 and beyond!
Please join us on Tuesday, December 3rd at 2pm ET (11am PT) for “How to Use Your Alumni Outcomes Data to Engage More Students,” a webinar co-hosted by Emsi and Ruffalo Noel Levitz (RNL). We’ll discuss the importance of knowing—and showing—your alumni’s employment outcomes when interacting with prospective students and parents. Attendees will learn strategies for effectively leveraging this information in campaigns, and best practices from institutions that are using alumni outcomes to prove ROI.
“What are our alumni doing now that they’ve graduated?” Seems like a simple, straightforward question. But for those working in higher education it’s one that all too often goes unanswered. In this post, we’ll look at three reasons why, despite the challenges, institutions have too much to gain from quality career outcomes data to simply settle for the status quo.
Do your graduates have work opportunities waiting for them post-graduation? As students consider which program to enroll in, they want to know they’ve picked one that will give them valuable skills and lead to high-wage, in-demand jobs. That’s why it’s important for educators to begin with the end in mind when reviewing existing programs or developing new ones. Aligning programs with target occupations that are projected to grow in your region can help you offer students a high-ROI education that equips them to accomplish their career goals.
Sierra College uses Career Coach to implement guided pathways, an educational model that promotes on-time graduation and career readiness by immersing students in career discussion from day one. The college has integrated administration, staff, and faculty into the career-counseling infrastructure, so that in addition to formal career and academic planning, students have a host of informal advisers to assist them whenever the subject arises.
