LMI Information

What Is LMI And What Types of LMI Are There?


LMI stands for Labour Market Information.

It refers to any relevant information about the current state of the jobs market.

LMI can include information like:


· The industries and businesses that operate in a certain location.

· The types of jobs that exist and what they involve.

· How many of those jobs there are.

· The skills that are currently or will be in high demand.

What Are Some Ways for Young People To Use LMI?


If you’re job hunting or will be soon, learning about LMI will help you to understand what opportunities are available to you and how you can best take advantage of them.

Based on LMI, you can decide things like:

· Are there job opportunities for me where I live?

· What are the different salaries for different jobs and careers?

· How long will it take me to rise through the ranks in my career to my desired position, and am I willing to do the work to get there?

· Is college, university, an apprenticeship, or working my way up from an entry level job the right path for me?
