HOW TO USE THE SYSTEM


The SWTCRN Career Pathways System is divided into two main sections: 1) Explore Your Area and 2) Explore Career Clusters. Each section presents specific information related to local labor market exploration.

INTRODUCTION TO CAREER CLUSTERS


In our economy, there are hundreds of occupations and numerous ways of grouping them. The classification system most commonly used in schools and state agencies is the National Career Clusters Framework. This framework groups occupations into sixteen different clusters based on similarities in foundational knowledge and skills needed to achieve career success.

INTRODUCTION TO LMI


Labor market information (LMI) is a collection of data complied primarily by government agencies for the purpose of analyzing job trends, wages, employment status, and economic changes related to workforce development. This rich data source contains statistics on hundreds of occupations, including annual job openings, median wages, growth rates, level of education, and more.

STRATEGIES FOR IDENTIFYING HIGH-VALUE CAREERS


Identifying high-value careers can be challenging. A primary reason for this is the lack of consistency in labeling and defining high-value careers. These careers have been labeled as high-value, in-demand, hot, bright outlook, growing, and top careers, just to name a few.

INCORPORATING LMI INTO CAREER EXPLORATION, PLANNING, AND POLICY


When LMI is part of career exploration, planning, and policy, students benefit from a more comprehensive and complete career preparation experience that acknowledges jobs trends and helps students position themselves for high-value careers.
