LinkUp job listing data, collected daily and directly from company websites, can add crucial insight into market trends, evolving industry practices, and skill frameworks that are most in-demand.
Understanding occupational specific skills that are in-demand is crucial information which can be used to guide education and training programs. Because job listings can include information at the company, geographic, or occupational level, real-time labor market information is an innovative source of highly detailed insights for workforce planning across industries.
Researchers from the University of Washington’s Center for Health Workforce Studies used LinkUp’s database of millions of job listings to determine how demand for health information technology (HIT) skills is distributed across occupation types, finding that one particular occupation was most likely to require HIT skills and specific HIT skill sets were less in-demand than others across the industry.
