% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

We’re excited to announce that the
Emsi Skills library now has skills descriptions! These new, detailed descriptions help you understand each skill better. The skill pages have the following information:

  • Skill description (plus a link to Wikipedia where you can see even more details)
  • Related skills
  • Top job titles that require this skill
  • Top companies posting for this skill
  • Sample live job postings for this skill
  • Job posting trends for this skill over the last year

A note about related skills: We pull these skills from actual job postings, based on how frequently they show up alongside the skill you are currently searching, so you can trust they are truly applicable.

Emsi Skills can help jobseekers (and everyone)

Emsi Skills is a great tool for jobseekers writing their resumes. Skills can make or break a resume, so checking our skills library for definitions and related skills assures that your resume is an accurate depiction of what you can bring to the table. 

Hiring managers writing job descriptions can also use Emsi Skills to make sure they include the exact skills they want—not too many, not too few. 

And finally, Emsi Skills is ideal for learning providers writing curriculum summaries. When you include the right skills in your program description, you can attract the right students. Those skills will in turn give students a clear understanding of their abilities as they enter the workforce.
