Is there a glossary of terms mapping the Looker® Ad-Hoc Reporting and Data Management Solution terminology to the GradLeaders Career Center naming conventions?


Your GradLeaders Career Center platform data has already been modeled to make using Looker® even easier to use. But if you're not familiar with the GradLeaders Career Center terminology (or Looker®) we've created this handy glossary to help you better understand what each term means:

 

General Looker Terminology

Look = Report

Space = Folder to contain saved Looks

Data Model = GradLeaders has built the GradLeaders Career Center data architecture into Looker in a hopefully user-friendly way.  This model can be easily changed and improved without GradLeaders Career Center system changes.

Explore = major GradLeaders Career Center Data Module

View = GradLeaders Career Center Data Table or CSO Database

Dimension = Data Field found in GradLeaders Career Center

Measure = Pre-Defined Calculated Fields.  These are not actual GradLeaders Career Center data fields, but GradLeaders added them to the model for ease of use.

Drills (Drill-downs) = click-through details on a Look

Custom Calculations = Columns that a user can add to a Look

 

GradLeaders Data Model Standards

GradLeaders Career Center allows flexible configurations and many schools name things differently.  These are the generic names used in the GradLeaders Career Center Looker Data Model.

Advising = Advising, Career Coaching, Career Counseling, etc.

Candidates = candidates, students, alumni, members, etc.

Employers = employers, companies, organizations, etc.

Employment / Job Offers = all variations of employment data, outcomes, placement, etc.

Events = all variations of Employer / Company Events.

Jobs = used for Job Postings and it also includes on-campus interview jobs

Mock Interviews = Mock interviews, practice interviews, group advising, small groups, etc.

Notes = Notes, observations, etc.

On-Campus Interview Visits = all variations of OCR, OCI, Interview Dates, etc.

Recruiter = recruiter, contact, etc.

School Staff = all admin users

Workshops = workshops, programs, professional development, etc.

 

View Naming Conventions

Master = the primary view for a given data entity.  Examples: Workshop Master, Candidate Master, Job Master.  This will contain most of the standard Dimensions (fields) that you see in your GLCC system, including many that schools can customize (like student major or company industry).

Details = the view where school's customizable profile fields are contained.  Examples: Workshop Details, Candidate Profile Details, Job Details.  In the various “Details” views, all of the nomenclature is the same:

Activity = transactional data.  Examples: Event Candidate Activity, Advising Activity Details, etc.
