Welcome to Beer with Emsi.
Wrong way round. (laughing)
Beer with Emsi, take 28.
Ladies and gentlemen, it’s actually Friday now.
This is actually Beer with Emsi, not Milk with Emsi, and today I’m drinking an Epic Brewing Flamingo Planet guava blonde ale, probably disgusting, or it might be great.
Hey, guess what?
I’m gonna drink out of the can.
You can’t stop me.
It’s actually not bad.
Okay, guess what Emsi did this week?
We released Emsi Open Titles, ta-da!
A free and open API of 75,000 job titles designed to help businesses fix the confusing language of job titles.
This is not April fools, that was yesterday.
This is real, super exciting.
Why is this so important?
Well did you know that there are over 7,000 languages spoken in the world today?
Think about traveling through a foreign airport and not being able to talk to people or understand directions to your gate.
It would be really problematic and confusing.
One wrong turn, guess what?
You just missed your flight.
I’ve been there, I’ve done that, I’ve slept on the floor, it’s not fun.
The labor market today feels the exact same way.
A few beers with Emsi ago, I talked about how some companies have as many as 7,000 titles.
This is just massively confusing and super inefficient.
It would be like if every airport you went to had their own language, one they made up.
At Emsi, our goal is to bring efficiency to the labor market.
And one of the ways that we’re doing that is by helping employers clean up their job title messes.
I think I did a great job that time.
And this is important because titles can be too specific or too vague, or simply repetitive, using lots of different titles for the same job.
Plus your job titles don’t match the job titles of the organization next door.
Everybody’s missing flights because nobody speaks the same language and we’re all stuck in the airport together.
I’m gonna have some more, mm.
Open Titles fixes all of this and all the other problems you might have.
Just enter a job title and immediately discover the standardized job title that everyone will understand.
It’s like magic and it’s really helpful.
Now you can create better job postings and descriptions, find the right talent faster, and help people find a good job that is really meaningful for their life and their family.
What do you want?
Disturbing the talent.
You can also benchmark your talent supply against that of your competitors, analyze supply and demand for certain talent and compare your salaries against other organizations.
So Emsi Titles is a huge win for companies trying to find the right people and for people trying to find the right job.
It’s amazing, I hope you love it.
Check it out, tell your friends, have a beer.
No, I’m gonna do it, I’m not gonna fake it.
Ow, that hurts too.
