As one of the 14 program elements for the WIOA youth program, labor market information refers to services that provide labor market and employment information about in-demand industry sectors or occupations available in the local area and includes career awareness, career counseling, and career exploration services.
Labor market information also identities employment opportunities, and provides knowledge of job market expectations, including education and skill requirements and potential earnings.
