The importance of embedding your labor market data across your university
Labor market data is a critical tool to increasing visibility into potential career paths, and more importantly, the required skills, salaries, hiring trends and other related information that's often missed when assessing future careers. This information is essential for your students, who can use this information to inform their daily career decisions, but also other stakeholders, like prospective students, parents and families, faculty, and more.
Bringing labor market data into admissions and enrollment sites, academic program pages, and other areas of your university website can help to inform stakeholders of where the labor market is headed, and position your institution as the necessary step to finding success.
Not to mention, sharing this tool with your university will position you and your team as leaders on campus in terms of tying your institution's value to real world outcomes.
How to embed your labor market data using our iframe code
To embed your labor market data, start by navigating to the public-facing page that it currently exists on your uConnect platform.
On this page, you'll notice a small 'embed' icon in the top right hand corner of the page, outlined below (this icon is only available to admin of your platform, and will not be seen by students or other visitors).
Click on the icon to open up the embed configuration screen.
Copy the iframe code in the first box and plug it into any university website that supports iframe codes, and the labor market insights module will appear in full function!
If you'd like to embed a filtered set of labor market data, say only labor market data related to finance to embed on an academic finance program page, you can do so by selecting a Career Cluster(s) or Pathway(s) from the dropdowns in the Limit Browsing bby: section. As stated, any filters you apply here will limit search results within the embedded labor market insights module.
Lastly, you can choose how you'd like to allow people to search for occupations within the module itself, either by keyword search, or by selecting from a list of career clusters and pathways, by indicating one or the other, or both, in the Able to search by: dropdown.
