Understanding the Market, and Guiding Decisions

 

Gathering job market data is one thing, but making sense of it and putting it to practical use is a whole different challenge. Our Applied Research team tackles this challenge by providing the analysis and tactical advice on skills and jobs that employers need most.

Our teams covers topics that: 

  • Guide educators to make critical decisions about new degree programs
  • Assist governments in making job training investments based on the skills employer need most
  • Develop customized career ladders to help job seekers find opportunities for advancement
