This dashboard captures the occupational supply and demand for the 15 Virginia Workforce Development Areas. The demand data come from Burning Glass Technologies. They have a unique “spidering” technology that captures more than 90 percent of all job postings from the internet – from job posting sites as well as the postings of businesses on their own websites. They also disaggregate the number of job postings by detailed occupation, in order to determine which occupations are in high demand – and vise-versa. This interactive model enables users to:
- Select which area / region they are interested in (or all of them)
- Select clusters of occupations – by level of study – and drill down to more specific occupations within each cluster. For each, the top skills and certifications requested by employers will be displayed.
- View institutions and workforce credentials by program offerings, by region and career area.
- Download the images and tables from the model.
We have also created similar dashboards for the states of Kentucky and Georgia, University of Maryland University College, the Washington State Board of Community and Technical Colleges, Front Range Community College, and Community College of Denver.
