This blog post delves into innovative ways that data is used to visualize career paths and the future of work. Individuals - from college students and recent grads to professionals whose skills are becoming obsolete or those looking to switch careers - struggle with a lack of transparency and subjectivity surrounding career education and decisions. Interactive data visualization is a powerful tool that invites exploration and is perfectly suited to address this challenge.
Labor Market Information (LMI) tools are great ways to identify information about jobs, salaries, required skills, hiring outlook, trends, tools and software used, demographic, and so much other useful data. Hiring managers can identify typical times to hire candidates, salary ranges, and even where they can find candidates and companies that are hiring them. Educational organizations can use LMI data to identify degree and continuing education programs that make sense to implement. Business leaders thinking about adding more locations across the United States can identify the best locations for the types of employees they will need there with an LMI. Individuals can use LMI data to get salary ranges, identify hiring companies, and discover the requisite skills to land the job.
