2018 Webcast Series: Best Practices in Program Portfolio Assessment – Employer Demand

March 14, 2018

The second episode of our webcast series on Best Practices in Program Portfolio Assessment focused on Employer Demand.  Our live webcast helped institutions assess employment markets for graduates of their programs.  We highlighted all of the data sources and the limitations of each source, so you can avoid their pitfalls and use them to effectively to guide program decisions.

For example, the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) is the best source for total employment in a given occupation.  However, 85% of BLS growth projections are off by 50% or more.  And 42% of BLS’s growth projections are off by more than 100%.
