Students are increasingly looking to their college or university to help them launch a successful and meaningful career. The pressure is on for institutions and their career centers to deliver.
A highly impactful tool that can help students make data-driven decisions about academic and career pathways has, for the most part, not been made available to career centers or their students. That tool is labor market data.
uConnect, the creator of the first all-in-one virtual career center, has teamed up with with Emsi, a leading provider of labor market analytics to colleges and universities, to help schools bring valuable labor market insights to career services teams and their students.
Labor markets are rapidly changing with the transformation of industries. Integrating labor market data into the career services experience allows students can root their career decisions in data by understanding interactive employment trends. They can direct their academic experience towards a career by deep-diving into education levels, hard skills and soft skills. And they can better understand compensation standards using data about annual earnings across industries and geographies.
In this Career Everywhere Network Showcase, Matt Miller of Emsi and David Kozhuk of uConnect will be sharing more about the mission to bring labor market insights into the career center, and how doing so creates an integrated, holistic, and data-driven career services experience for students. Luis Santiago, Associate Director for Coaching Operations at University of Washington will share lessons from first-hand, on-the-ground experience utilizing labor market data in advising students.
