Emsi2019 CEO Keynote: What Emsi Is Doing to Help You Lead & Engage

Last month, Emsi CEO Andrew Crapuchettes presented this keynote, “What Emsi Is Doing to Help You Lead and Engage,” at Emsi2019, our ninth annual users’ conference. The keynote was one of the highlights of the three-day conference. Now you can see it for yourself!

Crapuchettes introduced Emsi’s groundbreaking product updates of 2019. He demonstrated how these new and improved services will help professionals in higher education, business, and economic development:

  • Establish themselves as leaders.

  • Solve critical problems.

  • Influence and inspire peers, organization, and entire communities.

Emsi Skills

Crapuchettes’s most exciting announcement was the introduction of Emsi Skills: a new, open-access skills library featuring nearly 30,000 skills from hundreds of millions of job postings, resumes, and professional profiles. The free library is open to the public, providing an up-to-date collection of the real-world skills that people have and that employers value.

“We built Emsi Skills to create a common language between people, education, and employers—groups that have historically struggled to communicate,” said Crapuchettes in a press release. “Employers want to know what skills to require in their job postings. Educators want to know what skills to teach in their programs. And jobseekers want to know what skills to learn so they can succeed in the workforce.”
