Introducing Career Path Explorer

The talent management marketplace is a dynamic environment that is always responding to the changing needs of both organizations and employees. The rapid nature of these changes makes it particularly difficult for job seekers to gain an accurate understanding of a role, responsibilities and industry as a whole.

The majority of job seekers gather information about employers from popular job boards where data is self-reported and seldom verified. This information isn’t always accurate and up-to-date, leading to misalignment between employee and employer expectations. 

Thrive is excited to offer a new feature to help your organization’s departing employees navigate their next career steps. The Career Path Explorer is designed to ensure your departing employees are equipped with the tools to help them navigate a career transition. Supported by AI and big data analytics, individuals can discover new career opportunities, identify similar roles across various industries, explore if their desired career path is growing, as well as which skills can help them advance their careers. The Career Path Explorer provides actionable insights rooted in timely and verifiable data leading to more accurate talent matching and can be leveraged by job seekers in a number of ways…

Where does the data come from?

Thrive has partnered with leading data provider Lightcast (formed through a recent merger between leading labour data providers EMSI and Burning Glass) to source timely, accurate and comprehensive labour market and job posting data. The data is collected from government sources, applicant profiles and hundreds of millions of job postings created by employers. We interpret this data using AI and predictive analytics to provide critical insights about the market to users and inform their career transition decisions.

Thrive is paving the way for better career development services to support employees in their career transition journey. Career Path Explorer is helping your departing workforce progress forward in a rapidly evolving talent marketplace and is at the heart of our mission.
