Job Market Insights

Job Market Insights is a powerful tool that consolidates and displays data that originates from the U.S. Department of Labor and is available from multiple pages across the MCS website. Some of the key insights include employment trends, top employers, and annual earnings based on student searches by keyword, industry, occupation, and U.S. geography.

For example, using the keywords “Marketing Manager” and filtering on “District of Columbia” as a location, the Job Market Insights tool displays these results:

Graphical data accompanied by the text: The number of jobs in the career for the past two years, the current year, and projections for the next 10 years. Job counts include both employed and self-employed persons, and do not distinguish between full- and part-time jobs. Sources include Emsi industry data, staffing patterns, and OES data. Over the next 10 years, employment demand is expected to change by +8.22% for Marketing Managers.
Trends help you anticipate what the demand will be for the given job or career into the future. Is this a growing field?
