This web site is a public database designed to evidence the demand for specific jobs, skills and certifications compared to the supply of graduates in related training (of two years or less) in Indiana.
IndianaSkills analyzes employer job postings throughout Indiana and ranks which job titles are requested most often, both statewide and by region. The site provides specialized skills, baseline skills, and industry certifications being requested by employers for these occupations. Job postings data is provided by Burning Glass, a company that uses proprietary technology to "spider" more than 17,000 sources worldwide including employer websites, job boards, newspapers and government agencies.
IndianaSkills also provides the latest employment and wage data available for recent graduates of Indiana's public post-secondary institutions. This information comes from Indiana's Workforce Intelligence System, or IWIS. Because IndianaSkills is focused on middle-skills jobs, the term "graduate" refers to completers of short-term training (two years or less beyond high school) including Certificates and Associates degree programs.
IndianaSkills is a tool to inform decision making for career advisors, school counselors, students, job seekers, career changers, employers, workforce researchers and policymakers. Users can find which jobs, skills and certifications are requested by employers and which Certificate and Associates programs have the most graduates, with the highest employment rates and earnings. With a simple click, a one-page job description can be created summarizing the skills and certifications requested for any occupation. Employers can use this to add better detail about skills and certifications they are requesting in job ads placed on Indiana Career Connect or other job boards.
