“Finding a good job after graduation is one of the main reasons students seek out higher education,” said Matthew Sigelman, CEO of Burning Glass. “Our partnership with GradLeaders will empower students with the insights they need to achieve successful career outcomes and it will provide employers with the tools they need to hone in on the talent they are looking for.”

 Leveraging the power of Burning Glass’ data, GradLeaders will integrate artificial intelligence technology and real-time job data analysis into both their GradLeaders Career Center solution as well as their GradLeaders Recruiting tools.
