How to use labour market information (LMI) to help make career decisions
LMI (Labour Market Information)
Labour Market Information (LMI) is the name for facts and figures about jobs and employment. The information is used to give an overall picture of the past, present and future of work. The labour market is the term used to describe the amount of people working and looking for work, and the amount of jobs.
LMI can help you understand:
what a job involves on a day-to-day basis
which jobs are growing or declining – for example, it is predicted that the amount of nurses will rise, but the amount of printers will fall
what qualifications or skills you might need to do a job
how much you might earn
how your interests and skills are relevant to particular jobs
what jobs there are in your region
Read some research by Warwick University as to why LMI is so important to research and understand. LMI Warwick paper here
