The “Recruiting Analysis” report (in Talent Premium this report is called “Occupation Snapshot”) consists of:
Occupational data (a SOC code) is the backbone of the report. It provides us with the necessary comprehensive analytics on things like supply of talent, demographics, and compensation. SOC codes are helpful because they represent a thorough picture of the US workforce; however, SOC codes can be broad so we use profile data to narrow down results with skills and keywords.
Government data is the backbone of the Recruiting Analysis report, providing highly comprehensive analytics on things like supply of talent, demographics, and compensation. We use SOC codes to get us to the right genus of talent, then layer in skills and keywords to focus our search if necessary. Skills are drawn from our Profile and Job Postings datasets, and when paired with a SOC code, get us focused yet comprehensive data.
There are two ways to run the Recruiting Analysis report:
Let’s use the example of “Forklift Operator” in Dallas:
Once you hit “RUN” you can see that Emsi Burning Glass mapped “Forklift Operators” to the best SOC code (Industrial Truck and Tractor Operators) and added in the top skill of “Forklift Truck” to the dataset. This means the report is showing you data within the broad job family of Industrial Truck and Tractor Operators with profiles and job postings that have the skill “Forklift Truck” present.
For example, if you wanted to widen your Forklift Operator search and include a few more relevant skills (widen the net), you would go into “Advanced Options,” type in your SOC code, click “Any Skills,” and add in any other relevant skills in “Select Additional Skills”:
When we run the report, we now see those additional skills!
Reports to use: Profile Analytics
STEP ONE: Always start with what you know!
→ Job Title: Take your job title and run it through our taxonomy of over 75,000 titles to see if you have a fit.
When you search by job title, the report will only show profile results that exactly match that title.
In the results of the report, there will be a section of relevant occupations. This is where you can find the best-fitting SOC code:
→ Add the top or most relevant SOC code from this list to the filter
––> Next, REMOVE THE JOB TITLE. Why? A job title in the filter will muddy the results, making them way too narrow. Remember, the SOC + Skill combo (not just job title) is one of the strongest views of the data.
STEP TWO: Refine your search
→ In the left-hand control panel, you can use the many filters that help refine or expand your search as needed. Take a few more seconds to add/exclude other skills, play with keywords, or narrow by competitor insights.
→ Using the SOC + Skill combo helps you discover relevant, nearby job titles.
→ Add in a known competitor plus your SOC + Skill combo to see how other employers classify their talent.
→ You can always run this report with JUST skills or keywords – discover what happens when you clear the “Occupation” field and add in several skills to the filter!
