Improving Job Postings and Accelerating Skills-based Hiring with the Jobs Data Exchange Data Trust

The US Chamber of Commerce Foundation and Brighthive partner with a network of employers, HR technology companies, and education and training providers to improve jobs signals from employers

People need to know what jobs are available and what skills are required to fill them in real-time. JDX™ will improve how clearly employers communicate their hiring needs to workforce development partners and educators across the country.

The JDX will help employers and their HR technology partners to send better, faster, clearer signals on in-demand jobs and skills. The JDX will support more accurate, comparable, and machine-readable data on jobs through improved data standards as well as open data tools, resources, and applications. The result? Better employer signaling to education and workforce partners to improve career pathways and guidance for learners and workers.

In short, the JDX will:

  • Create industry-validated job profiles
  • Develop competency-based job descriptions
  • Distribute job postings to preferred and trusted partners as linked, structured data

This project, that began with an idea that we needed clearer employer signaling in the talent marketplace to be able to make a dent in today’s workforce challenges, is leading to the development of the modern-day Rosetta stone that will translate and decode what skills employers seek for their workforce.
