As a workforce provider, you know that labor market information (LMI) is an essential tool for your practice. However, many practitioners are challenged with putting the information together so that it provides a clearer picture that informs their practice. During this workshop, participants will learn the steps to finding, assembling, and combining multiple sources of intelligence, making sense of it all, and keeping it up to date.
This training is designed for practitioners who are able to locate and understand information about wages, employment, growth projections, and educational requirements from websites like O*NET, CareerZone, BLS, and/or the New York State Department of Labor. It is especially useful to workforce professionals using sector- or occupation-specific strategies.
Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:
- Enhance their understanding of LMI through hands-on activities;
- Gather readily available data and identify intelligence from other relevant sources;
- Assemble the intelligence they’ve gathered into a meaningful tool they can use on the job;
- Learn to create and maintain a labor market “intel report” that is tailored to their program needs; and
- Develop a plan for keeping their information up to date.
