JobPulse™

Real-time job data, integrated into your ATS

Real-Time Data, Easy to Use Dashboard

Every job hunt is different, but for the hiring manager, they all start with some basic questions:

  • How long will it take to fill this opening?
  • How much will it cost?
  • Is there some way to fill this job cheaper, easier, and faster?

JobPulse™ can find the answers.

Understand the Hiring Landscape

Now recruiters and HR managers can have data from Burning Glass, the world’s pre-eminent source of real-time labor data, at their fingertips as they make hiring decisions. Our easy to use JobPulse analytics dashboard can be built into existing HRMS systems.

Hiring decisions don’t happen in a vacuum. To hire the right people, companies need to understand the market. The JobPulse dashboard can tell you:

  • The number of postings, concentration, average time to fill, and average salary;
  • The education levels, skills, and certifications other firms require;
  • Examine similar jobs to see if they are likely sources of candidates;
  • Whether the job would be easier to fill in other parts of the country;
  • Which competitors are hiring, and what they’re offering.

This kind of insight allows a recruiter or hiring manager to fill positions faster–and save their company money.

Real-time job data for career services

Support students and alumni as they explore careers and make education decisions with the world’s pre-eminent source of real-time labor data, Burning Glass Technologies.

The Profile Tab:
Any student exploring career options is going to have a number of questions that Job Pulse can answer:

  • Are there local jobs in this field?
  • How much do they typically pay?
  • Do I have the qualifications employers are asking for?
  • What booster skills and certifications can I gain to make me the most competitive candidate?
  • Who’s hiring?
  • If I’m willing to move, where is the job demand and starting salary higher?
  • Are there similar roles that are in higher demand or that pay more?

Job Pulse is part of a full suite of software products by Burning Glass Technologies called Education Insight that drives institutional success.

The Related Jobs Tab:
This is where the Big Data analysis really shines. Burning Glass is able to normalize the skills described in job ads and see which other openings ask for similar skills. This enables students to explore jobs that are similar to widen their search and expand their options. There may be more demand in Boston at a given time for application developers than for programmer/analysts, for example, and those roles would come with higher salaries.

The Locations Tab:
Or maybe the student is willing to consider relocating. There may be other locations where the demand is greater and the salaries higher. The Locations Tab offers a look at demand on a national scale.
In this case, there’s a lot of demand for programmer/analysts in major metropolitan areas. This view is where to research whether similar jobs in different locations have higher or lower median salaries.

The Who’s Hiring Tab:
This shows which companies are looking for programmers in a selected metro location. The requirements cited within the data help can inform a student’s academic and professional development decisions.
Now students can really focus their efforts. They know what to expect for the job in question, and they can target learning opportunities and job search in a more focused way. They can understand where they will be most valuable in the job market, and what they can do to become even more qualified candidates.

Real-time job data integrated into the ATS workflow

Support applicant tracking and Human Resources workflow by delivering detailed and current job market data by occupation and metro area, including data for skills, education requirements, and salary targets.

The Profile Tab:
Every job search is different, but for the hiring manager, they all start with the same basic questions which can be answered by Job Pulse

  • How long will it take to fill this opening?
  • How much will it cost?
  • Is there some way to fill this job faster and more cheaply and easily?
  • Are other local companies competing for the same candidates?
  • What are the required skills and current salary rate for this position?
  • Which areas of the U.S. are most likely to have qualified candidates for a particular opening?
  • Are there similar, but more easily-filled roles if good candidates can’t be found for a particular position?

The Related Jobs Tab:
This is where the Big Data analysis really shines. Burning Glass is able to normalize the skills described in job ads and see which other openings ask for similar skills. The Related Jobs Tab indicates additional jobs that are similar to widen the search and expand the options.  Application analysts, for example, have a comparable salary but may be less in demand and easier to find in a particular area.

The Locations Tab:
No qualified local candidates for a job? Too many local candidates, but no corresponding openings?
Use The Locations Tab to research where the demand is greater across the nation for a particular job or skill set. Job Pulse provides insight regarding time to fill a position by metro area, salary ranges, and more.

Job Pulse Technical Details:
Job Pulse is a SaaS-based solution that integrates into an existing Applicant Tracking System (ATS) using a URL to launch the application. Users work with Job Pulse via the web-browser, which can be configured to run next to the native ATS front-end.

Developers working with the APIs have the option of passing parameters through to select specific data in the Job Pulse interface.

  • How much does the job typically pay?
  • What are the booster skills and certifications needed to be competitive?
  • Who’s hiring?
  • If the job seeker is willing to move, where is the job demand and starting salary higher?
  • Are there similar roles that are in higher demand or that pay more?
  • Is there a more appropriate job based on the job seeker’s current skill set?

Real-time job data for recruiting and staffing organizations

Gain a competitive edge by understanding the local job market, current job openings by company, and specific, hard-to-find required skills.

  • Which qualifications are most likely to be needed for a particular job?
  • How can candidates boost their job marketability?
  • Who’s hiring?

The Related Jobs Tab:
This is where the Big Data analysis really shines. Burning Glass is able to normalize the skills described in job ads and see which other openings ask for similar skills. The Related Jobs Tab indicates additional jobs that are similar to widen the search and expand the options. Those roles can be further targeted in a resume research, using a resume parser and search and match function such as the LENS suite by Burning Glass. An example of this is finding application developers to fill programmer/analyst jobs if there is no current market demand for applications developers.

The Locations Tab:
No qualified local candidates for a job? Too many local candidates, but no corresponding available jobs in the area?
Use The Locations Tab to research where the demand is greater across the nation for a particular job or skill set. The product provides insight regarding time to fill a position by metro area, salary ranges, and more.

The Who’s Hiring Tab:
This helps find target companies by providing a clear and current indication of who’s hiring for which type of job and the qualifications required, resulting in a more focused recruiting effort.
Candidate success rates are improved and openings filled more quickly and cheaply by knowing the right questions to ask and having the most complete information at hand.
