About this Workshop

Are STEM graduates in demand? How is the NYC economy performing? Which career areas are hiring the most STEM graduates, and what level of experience and skills are most employers seeking? What are common job titles for entry and mid-level positions? Are these jobs available in the New York City area? How can understanding labor market information help you in your job search?

To help answer some of these questions, we invite you to join us for an exploration of the STEM Workforce Data Project. This virtual event will feature an introduction to labor market data by the NYC Labor Market Information Service, an overview of the methodology used to create the STEM Workforce Data Project, and some practical suggestions about how understanding labor market information might help you in your current or future job search.

About the STEM Workforce Data Project

The STEM Workforce Data Project features four interactive data visualizations that reflect online job postings in STEM fields for the six-month period between January 1 – June 30, 2021. The data visualizations present overviews of employer demand for occupations in seven career areas for STEM Master’s, Doctoral, and Postdoctoral-level scholars. You can learn more about the types of jobs available in each of the seven career areas by using the data visualizations to focus in on geographic location, the education level employers are seeking, and the years of experience required for different roles. From there, you can see common job titles, skills and certifications that are important to employers, and industries and employers that are currently hiring.

This project was funded by the CUNY Central Office Career Success – Workforce Development Initiative. The data was compiled by the NYC Labor Market Information Service (LMIS) at the Center for Urban Research, and this resource was created as a collaboration between LMIS and the Office of Career Planning & Professional Development.
