From establishing career pathway programs to forming curriculum advisory councils, there are a variety of ways that schools and businesses can work together. These partnerships often lead to more relevant classes, more qualified job applicants, and more skilled workers—and benefit the entire community.

But finding and connecting with the right partners can be a challenge. That’s why Lightcast (formerly Emsi) recently hosted a webinar with Dr. Kevin Long, director of policy and planning at Montgomery College (Rockville, MD).

Dr. Long shared how Montgomery College is using the Profile Analytics module within Analyst to develop new strategic partnerships with local employers. His approach can be summarized this way: Cast a broad net, narrow your scope, pivot, and repeat.

See a recording of the webinar below, which includes Q&A and a live demonstration of Analyst’s Profile Analytics module.

Based on Dr. Long’s presentation, we’ve also put together a brief webinar guide with tips and suggested steps for using Analyst and Profile Analytics to power your own employer engagement research.
