Labor Insight™Sophisticated, real-time labor market information to guide decision making
Real-Time Insight Into the Job Market
Our analytical product allows users to understand and adapt to the labor market in real time. Every day, Burning Glass collects millions of online job postings from more than 40,000 sources and applies our patented technology to mine and code detailed data from each posting describing the specific skills, education, experience, and work activities required for the job – going well beyond the occupation and industry codes offered in other sources.
The easy-to-use Labor Insight dashboard allows detailed analysis of hiring activity by industry, occupation, education, and skills. Labor Insight is used by:
- Educators, to understand the needs of employers and align programs with the job market
- Researchers, to gain real-time insight into labor trends
- Workforce and economic development agencies, to find out more about the skills in demand, how that matches up with the local workforce, and where to allocate job training resources
“Tools like Burning Glass help us tell the story. Everybody, at the highest level, comes to us for that data. It’s so baked into our system now that we don’t even question it. We will always have demand now that we can show what it can do.”Alan Spell
“With real-time, labor-time market data, we can conduct a scan of any occupation. We know who is hiring and what competencies and technical skills they need. We are making sure our program choices and curriculum remain current so that our students are trained and ready for jobs employers need to fill.”Linda L. Head
