Solutions for Labor Market Analysts

The Next Generation of Workforce LMI - Virtual LMI ®

The new generation of labor market information systems introduces groundbreaking delivery mechanisms that are being used across the nation to present traditional and real-time labor market information to job seekers and employers in order for them to make informed career choices and better understand the labor force where they are advertising job openings. Labor market information, partnered together with other transactional data, creates a dynamic resource for analysts, job seekers, and employers to review data on occupations, geographies, and industries.

Incorporating labor market information into a labor exchange system certainly gives job seekers a better understanding of the location of jobs, the size of the labor pool which are applying for those jobs, the wages associated with them, and training opportunities nearby to aid them in education, training, and skill development. Similarly, employers who have access to labor market information take advantage of research tools that allow them to become more competative with other employers looking for qualified talent.

Virtual LMI includes multiple functions for dynamic research, comparison, and analysis purposes. The user-friendly interface, accessed via the Internet, provides comprehensive occupational, real-time, and historic LMI data spidered from thousands of sources on the Internet, the Workforce Information Database (WID), O*NET database, the BLS Occupational Outlook Handbook, as well as those posted to our Virtual OneStop sites. Customize data, menu widgets and cutting edge dashboard interfaces give analysts the flexibility to run custom reports based on specific areas, demographics, industries, wages, economic indicators, and so much more.

Virtual LMI boasts a plethora of new features including the ability for analysts to add custom content directly to result pages such as LAUS and OES (via CRM), customize data/menu widgets, and utilize interactive graphing capabilities, as well as industry and occupational search options.
