The Workforce Alignment Committee determined that a year-to-year licensing agreement with CEB’s TalentNeuron Recruit would provide a short to mid-term solution to the need for a real-time labor market data tool. TalentNeuron Recruit aggregates millions of job postings into easy-to-find and use data sources on most in demand jobs, skills, certifications, and education. The tool also provides four years of aggregate data by region, city, county or town, as well as by industry, occupation or employers.
A Minnesota Job Skills Partnership grant supported the initial investment in TalentNeuron Recruit and a project leader to engage partners and deploy the tool across Minnesota. About 200 users have direct access to this tool, including individuals who help students and job seekers find jobs more effectively as well as those who engage in economic, workforce, or academic planning.
