How To Find Labor Market Information

To find Labor Market Information for an occupation in OhioMeansJobs.com, click on the Occupational Search icon found on the home screen.

The Occupational Search screen will appear. You can search by industry, education, keyword or salary.

For our example today, we will click on the Industry drop-down and select Manufacturing. As you can see, the Manufacturing landing page appears. This page will show a definition of the industry, “fun facts” about it, and other information.

If you click on Labor Market Information, you can learn about employment projections for manufacturing, the number of manufacturing business establishments in Ohio, the education needed for careers in manufacturing, average age of workers in manufacturing, and more.

Each industry page has a Partners/Sponsors section to link you with companies or resources.

Also from this page, you can view a snapshot of the industry. It will show you how many jobs were posted, the salary, education, certifications, and skills needed for the industry. It will also tell you the top employers and occupations with the most job ads. Now let’s go back to the industry landing page.

Since manufacturing is a broad industry, let’s look at the Industry Careers to narrow down your interest. A list of occupations will appear, with in-demand occupations listed at the top. Ohio has identified in-demand occupations based on wage, projected number of openings, and expected industry growth.

Let’s select electronic engineering technicians. At the top of the page you’ll see a description of the occupation. Underneath that are related occupations with similar job duties.

The Work Activities section lists typical job duties performed by electronics engineering technicians. This page also shows employment trends, the outlook for the job, education and income information.

We hope this information has been helpful. Remember to check back often and search as many occupations as you’d like. This information is updated frequently to help you find your first, next or better job!
