Labour Market Information (LMI)
Although Labour Market Information should not be the deciding factor for what you want to do, it is important that you are aware as to whether you are going into a growing or declining sector. Where are the jobs that you require? How much does the average person earn in the careers sector that you are looking into? A growth sector means more jobs, but can mean more competition, a sector in decline can mean less opportunities but less competition.
