What is the Labour Market about?

  • Jobs and Salaries
  • Occupations that are growing or disappearing
  • Listings of your local industries and businesses (who they are, what they do, how to contact them)
  • Your community (who, what, where people live and work)
  • Information on the type of skills and training employers are looking for

Why do I need to know?

  • Helps you understand your strengths (skills) and/or areas that might be barriers to finding employment or re-training.
  • Helps you find the right “employment” fit.
  • It is important to know about the company(ies) you are applying to:  what they do, what they make, whether they are financially stable, etc. so that you can make informed decisions.
  • By understanding the business/industry you are applying to, you will be able to customize your resume and sell them on your skills and abilities; you will also be well prepared to answer their questions during an interview.
  • Assists when you are considering a career change and education or training programs.
