Leveraging Data for Workforce Development
Thursday, September 17, 2020
During these unprecedented times, it is more important than ever to make sure we are using all the tools we have to serve Minnesotans looking for work. Data is a hugely important tool in the Workforce Development toolbox.
In order to help people know which jobs are in demand now, and are likely to be in demand for the foreseeable future, DEED's Labor Market Information (LMI) Office does weekly analysis of jobs posted in Minnesota. LMI does this by analyzing new listings in the state on the National Labor Exchange (NLx). We share this information in a public way on the Jobs in Demand page on CareerForceMN.com – where any Minnesotan can see a regularly updated list of the top 30 jobs in demand in the state.
