Pathbreakers Webinar Series: “What Students Should Know About the Labor Market”


Matt Sigalman, CEO, Burning Glass; Mark Austin, Executive Director, New Ventures

December 11, 12:30 – 1:00 pm, via WebEx

Matt Sigelman, CEO of Burning Glass, a company that specializes in employment and job skill data, will discuss how universities are helping students develop knowledge, skills and abilities that align with what employers need most. We will discuss examples of how universities are “unlocking their catalogs” to help students better align what they accomplish in school with what employers are looking for, both today and into the 21st century.

Below are just a few of the questions discussed:

  • What are the most in demand jobs in the Greater Northern Virginia region?
  • How should universities prepare for changes in labor market demands?
  • Are there tools to help students evaluate their career options?
  • How can universities better support lifelong learning?
