uConnect partnered with Lightcast to bring real-time Labor Market Data straight into your virtual career center. This module allows users to learn more about potential careers by seeing employment trends, salary data, required skills, core tasks and more for any given occupation.

Users can search through a list of occupation, sourced by Lightcast, by keyword search, or by filtering through cluster and occupation titles provided by O*Net data.

This information enables a user to make more informed decisions about their potential career pathway, by allowing them to gain more insight into the context, requirements, and demand for potential occupations within their industry of interest.

For any given occupation, users can find information on:

  • Occupation description: an overview of the occupation

  • Core tasks: what's required for the day-to-day of the occupation

  • Employment trends: historical and forecasted occupation demand data with a projected % change in demand over the next 10 years

  • Top employers: top employers hiring for the occupation

  • Education levels: typical education levels for employees in this occupation

  • Annual earnings: average salary for employees in this occupation

  • Technical skills: technical skills required for the occupation

  • Soft skills: soft skills required for the occupation

  • Job titles: typical job titles within the occupational field

We can also map this data to your relevant career communities and embed it within your community pages! If you're interested in configuring this module on your uConnect platform, reach out to today!
