  • Data from online profiles: The online profiles we pull are generally a full-time series of an individual. The information we collect includes titles and companies worked at, dates of employment, types of education and skills achieved, and more.
  • Data from job postings: There are many job posting boards. We collect the posting dates, their job descriptions, and the salaries of every position. 
  • Data from employees: We gather intel on companies via employees with both scoring reviews and actual word reviews. 
  • Data from the government: The government publishes data often and it can help with your investment. We find domestic and global labor statistics, immigration filings, voter registration, census information, and social security data.
