By Patrick Korbel Technical Paper 10 July 2018 9781925717211

Description

NCVER has licensed access to Australian internet job postings data collected by Burning Glass Technologies. This data is sourced from job ads posted on various websites and provides information on the number and types of jobs available, as well as the required and desirable skills requested by employers.

This data complements NCVER’s existing data collections and surveys by providing information about demand in the Australian labour market, including the skills requested by employers.

NCVER has designed this suite of products to demonstrate the utility of these data and the possibilities they offer for further research and analysis. We welcome your feedback on the best ways to use this new data source to inform and influence the Australian VET sector.

These products focus on the skills requested in the internet job postings and how they relate to the skills being provided in training. We also provide examples of the kinds of analyses and insights that can be gained from the data.

The four products are:

  • Internet job postings: preliminary skills analysis – technical paper, which outlines how these data are collected and analysed, how they compare with other sources of data, and considerations for the use and interpretation of the data.

    It is important to read this document to understand this new and different data source.
  • Internet job postings: employability skills – infographic, which focuses on the general skills and attributes being requested across occupations and industries and has case studies on Hospitality workers and the Child care services sector
  • Internet job postings: trending and emerging skills – infographic, which focuses on the skills being requested more often across occupations and industries and has case studies on the ICT and telecommunications sector and Electricians
  • Internet job postings: personal care and support skills – infographic, which focuses on the skills being requested for jobs involving personal care and support.
