Labor Market Analyst (#MFDA01)
Description of Occupational Work
This class series uses four levels in the Engineering, Planning, Technical Services occupational group, Research and Analysis occupational series and describes the collection and analysis of data and statistics relative to labor market supply and industry demand for specific occupations, unemployment and employment data.
Note: The career ladder incorporates the Labor Market Analyst and Labor Market Senior Analyst levels; therefore, all positions allocated into the Labor Market Analyst career ladder are classified at the Senior Analyst level (highest level in the career ladder). The Analyst level is to provide entry for hiring new employees into the class series but does not preclude hiring new employees at higher levels. To implement the career ladder, current employees are assigned to the level for which they meet job requirements and promotional standards. Employees may be promoted through the career ladder in accordance with promotional standards for those levels assigned to an agency. The promotional standards, a selection document under separate cover, set forth the criteria that identify, measure and verify successful performance at each level. Advancement of employees through the career ladder is dependent on an agency/department's operational needs and distribution of work.
The Labor Market Information Supervisor and Labor Market Economist, although not part of the career ladder, provides competitive opportunity for movement of employees.
Essential functions are fundamental, core functions common to all positions in the class series and are not intended to be an exhaustive list of all job duties for any one position in the class. Since class specifications are descriptive and not restrictive, incumbents can complete job duties of similar kind not specifically listed here.
