Boston, MA – May 14, 2020 — Jenzabar, a leading technology innovator in higher education serving the new student, announced a new partnership with labor market analytics firm Emsi. The partnership includes an integration between the Advising module in Jenzabar Student and Emsi’s Career Coach, which will allow higher education institutions to help students align their academic programs with long-term career goals. It will also enable more meaningful discussions between advisors and students, empowering individuals to take more control over their learning and career direction.
This integration allows advisors, faculty, and staff at higher education institutions using the Advising module in Jenzabar Student to access student assessment results with Emsi’s Career Coach to enable early career discovery. By mapping the Career Coach findings with students’ current and future academic trajectories, students can align their interests with potential careers and their respective academic programs. This allows students to optimize their learning journeys to minimize completion delays.
The integration will also allow individuals to recommend vocations based on personality types, explore local job markets, build resumes, and apply for jobs through one, easy-to-use platform.
“Coaching, mentoring, and guiding students who may not have mapped out their career direction and corresponding academic program yet are core responsibilities for advisors. The integration between our student information system and Emsi’s Career Coach will support that collaboration through a single application,” said Jeff Elliott, Director of Product Management at Jenzabar. “By pointing to real-world data, advisors will have that spark to engage with students and deliver more personalized career advice and support for students.”
“We are excited to share our labor market data with institutions using Jenzabar’s systems to improve student success and experiences,” said Bob Hieronymus, Vice President of Partnerships at Emsi. “Giving students more control over how and why they pursue a higher education is an objective we share with Jenzabar and institutions around the world.”
