August 15, 2017

By Ellen Silva, product director, CareerBuilder Analytics

In today’s competitive and complex marketplace, having access to workforce data can be a powerful planning and recruiting tool. When used the right way, data can help you attract and source for open positions more efficiently and build a successful long-term recruiting strategy. Yet, data on its own without context or analysis can be overwhelming and confusing. So we built recruitment analytics solutions to make it easy to harness the power of data.

CareerBuilder’s comprehensive recruitment analytics suite includes:

  1. Supply & Demand by CareerBuilder – Part of CareerBuilder’s Resume Database, a tactical tool, typically used by a recruiter, that provides quick information on the recruitment market. You can download information such as top companies posting, a list of similar job titles and the background of candidates in your talent pool.
  2. Labor Market Analytics by Emsi – A strategic tool for high-level decision making in recruitment and market selection. It can also be used to establish a diversity hiring plan, with the inclusion of age, gender and race/ethnicity data for every occupation and industry, anywhere in the U.S.
  3. College Recruiting Analytics by Emsi – A comprehensive college graduation data set that allows you to filter every higher education institution in the U.S. by degree level, race/ethnicity, gender and veteran and disability status.
