Students Using LMI

Can High School Students Use Labor Market Information to Make Informed Career Choices?

High school students from Star Lane Center in the Natrona County School District (NCSD) were shown how to access occupational projections, wages, and other data provided by the Research & Planning (R&P) section of the Wyoming Department of Workforce Services. The students were tasked with analyzing their chosen career paths and presenting their findings to the Wyoming Workforce Development Council (WWDC).

Presentation (PDF)

Article in December 2013 Wyoming Labor Force Trends

The project required students to use occupational projections and wage information to analyze their chosen career paths in terms of the education required for the career and the potential for earnings once employed. Students were also asked to assess some of the vocational training opportunities proposed by NCSD’s forthcoming Center for Advanced and Professional Studies program. Students were given access to occupational wages, projections, and other R&P data in order to complete the project. Occupational wages and projections information used by the students can be found at http://doe.state.wy.us/LMI/projections.htm.

Presentation created by Star Lane students Katalin Gonzales, Alex Glover, Melissa Shoemaker, Logan Fox, Isaac Lee, Kellie Reynolds, Adam Couldridge, and Elias Vlastos.
