2017 Webcast Series: Best Practices in Program Portfolio Evaluation – Employer Demand

March 13, 2017

In the second webcast of our 4-part series on The Best Practices in Program Portfolio Evaluation, we highlighted all of the sources your institution can use to evaluate employer needs for your graduates.  We also shared the limitations of each data source, so you can use them more safely.

Here is a summary from our live webcast on employer demand: 

  •    BLS data is readily available, but is dated and a weak indicator of trends.
  •    Job posting data is vital for trends in employment growth, skills and certifications. 
  •    Aligning labor market data (SOCs) with programs (CIPs) is hard and error-prone.
