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
