Burning Glass – Real-time labor market information, also called real-time jobs data, is based on analysis of the millions of job listings posted every day by employers. A job description provides important insight into what employers are thinking. By its very nature, a job description means an employer has had to spell out the specific skills and qualifications they need to get a particular job done. Employers also have every incentive to get job descriptions right (bad or delayed hires can cost a lot of time and money). By analyzing job listings, researchers can find out which companies and sectors are hiring, which skills are in demand, how hard they are to find, and which jobs and skill sets are emerging.
