How to use the Global Dashboard
Updated over a week ago

Welcome to the Global Dashboard!

Here are few quick steps to help you get started with your access. As always, please reach out to us via Chat or directly to your Account Manager to set up a time to discuss in depth trainings or questions.

Getting Started

You can take your job title or a string of keywords and type in the "Enter a Job Title" input field. Please note that the first suggestion will be running your search as Keywords so it may pull up both “Android” and “Developer” unless you add strings. Our recommendation would be to use the closest aligned Job Title which you’ll see just below the keyword search option.

If you have a region in mind, then this is where you can enter it. We recommend to leave this blank as this will give you a complete overview of all global markets in our database allowing you to quickly compare markets to each other. The Occupation field will automatically fill itself in once a job title is entered. All job titles have a parent occupation.

Finally we have the skills section. Enter as many skills as you want and hit enter.

You will see our global map populate where you see the results of your search. You are able to re-organize the table by clicking on the column headers (Profiles Match on Job Title, etc.) To understand the definition of the column headers, hover your mouse over the info icon located to the left.

How to Jump Into a Market

There are 2 ways you can achieve this. The first way is to interact with the map and click on the blue circle of a market you are interested in. This will pop up a small snapshot of the market with a blue button to go to the more detailed report.

The second way is to click on a market name from the table. By doing this, you are automatically taken to the Global Occupation Snapshot report.

The Occupation Snapshot will give you detailed information on that labor category and market and is exportable to a PDF, Word or Excel file.

The global dashboard uses the Global Occupations to define categories of labor
