What’s new – Insights

Analyze the demand side of the job market with Insights

The new Insights tab offers users a visual representation of the jobs data they’re working with via charts to better analyze the demand side of the market. These insights update based on the current search form users currently customize for their queries and offer insight into top employers and agencies, top professions, job boards, median posting duration, salary offered, distribution by state and more.

What’s new – Revamped EMSI Analytics

Gain supply-side insight into the market with EMSI Analytics

The enhanced EMSI Analytics tab provides data from the US census bureau and other sources to offer insight into the supply side of the market. This is available per profession and is customizable down to the county level. EMSI is perfect for investigating the number of employees in a specific profession, their typical regional earnings compared to the national earnings and the number of people hired per month versus the number of job postings per month.

Create customized charts using the search form you are already familiar with

The many filters and search criteria that you’re already using on the Jobfeed portal for searching jobs work automatically with the data visualization on the Insights tab. This makes it a great way to turn a search you’re already busy with into an analysis of market demand and supply.

Actionable, interactive charts link directly to the job data

Most of the charts are interactive and link directly to the job details. Interactive charts are an intuitive way to explore and analyse data on a high level while still allowing you to immediately inspect the specific jobs, roles or companies behind this data.

Extensive data provides historical records as well as future trend prediction

The new charts available in Insights include job posting data since May 2016, while the EMSI Analytics section has labor market data stretching from 2001 to 2023 (future trend prediction). This information is ideal to support strategic decision making and adapt your focus and services to the needs of the market.

Create a visual overview about a specific role or company in minutes

The charts available on both the Insights and EMSI Analytics tabs can be changed to focus on a company or role depending on the data in the search form. This provides the information needed to spearhead existing conversations with customers or prospects about their unique situations.

Jobfeed update – new features now live

Amsterdam, 08/21/2018

Jobfeed, the big data tool for lead generation, labour market analytics and competitive insight, has released new features! These features include grouping job postings by website category through customized labels, offering more ways to structure the data that supports your strategic decision making. Another feature, filtering by labels, is immediately available and allows users to easily create and save filters as well as add them to excel exports and alerts. Additionally, the job coach, redeployment and mobility functionality of Jobfeed has been improved, with the option to now set an end date for alerts.

Create your own website filters to analyze industry trends, and unlock new sales opportunities by assessing the budget of your prospects

Previously, Jobfeed users had to add more websites to their analysis as an OR query. Now, with the new filter feature, users can select multiple websites of interest (such as the largest job boards) with a checkbox and group them together with a label. Labels can be customized to your own needs. For example, Staffing and Recruitment agencies can use groups to assess the budget of their prospects by creating website labels for job boards based on costs such as “free”, “low”, “standard” and “premium”.

Meanwhile, Job boards can easily analyze their competitors by creating website labels such as “direct competitors”, “indirect competitors” and “replacement competitors”.

TIP! Smart posting based on benchmark analysis and ROI predictions

It’s now possible to combine your organization labels and the new website labels to gain deeper insight into the posting strategies and budgets of your customers, competitors and prospects. Another possibility is to do the same for a specific sector (such as ICT) rather than for a group of companies. This helps you tailor your new job posting based on a benchmark analysis of the industry!

Keen to estimate the return on investment before you post a job on a job board? This is now possible with labels. One example would be to use website labels for “free”, “low cost”, “standard” and “premium” job boards and analyze the average time a posting is active in each category. This method can provide an easy way to estimate the time-to-hire by job board cost, highlighting ROI.

Add organization and website labels to your Excel exports and alerts

Jobfeed users can set up custom Excel exports and alerts to provide relevant information for their analyses. This new release now allows them to add organization and website labels to Excel exports and alerts as a column, or on separate tabs split across sheets. As an example, users can create a tab containing all jobs from existing customers. Other jobs will then be automatically listed in an “unlabeled” tab.

Optimization of the job coach, redeployment, mobility function in Jobfeed

Jobfeed offers tailored functionality for job coach, redeployment and mobility purposes to help job seekers find new vacancies. Users can set up a personalized job search with email alerts for each of their clients. Furthermore, Jobfeed users can track which jobs the clients have been clicking on in the email alerts to gauge interest and provide relevant feedback. As part of this release, job coach users can set end dates for their clients’ email alerts, helpful when the coach has a contract to deliver jobs until a specific date.
