How we do it
Lightcast is the global pioneer in the collection and big-data analysis of information on the labor market. Our data provides the world’s most detailed information about occupations, skills in demand, and career pathways.
Our tools collect real-time data from over 40,000 sources every day, contributing to a database with over 1 billion job postings and billions of other data points. We combine that with curated input from dozens of other statistical sources, like government agencies, to provide the most complete view possible of the fast-changing labor market. We put that information to work for businesses, communities, and education providers by showing them the granular details and big-picture trends they need in their organizations.
