Labour Market Information

Labour market information can help you make the right decision when you are exploring a career path, want to change jobs or move to a new place. It can help you find out what the labour market is like for a particular job or city. For example, if you were interested in becoming a nurse or doctor and you moved to a town where there is no local hospital, you would have a hard time finding a job.

Labour market information tells you:

  • · what jobs and skills employers are looking for.
  • · which industries are hiring and where they are located.
  • · where to find employers who are hiring.
  • · what education and training you need for specific jobs.
  • · which job areas are growing in the future and other statistics.
