CDI We Are Careers 


It’s Episode 2 of our new series of #WeAreCareers and in this episode, we’re getting political! Don’t worry viewers, no divisive party politics or Brexit debates here; instead, we are going to be speaking with Dr. Deirdre Hughes OBE about the role that politics and policy plays in the work we do as careers professionals and what we can do as members of the CDI to stay abreast of key developments that may impact ourselves and our clients, both within the UK and through the international careers community. We’ll also have our usual shout-out to an inspiring member of the CEIAG community and the latest news from the CDI and around the careers, education and business worlds!

Using Labour Market Information (LMI)

Career development professionals need to have a good grasp of the realities of the labour market. This can be applied alongside expert skills in guidance, coaching and counselling and makes career dialogue more meaningful for the client/customer.

Careerometer2 is a freely available widget provided by the LMI for All service. It is an easy way to get access to labour market information on your own website. Careerometer 2 is the new, updated version of the Careerometer widget developed early on in the project. This widget has enhanced browser and website compatibility and displays more data. Instructions on how to embed and format to your needs is detailed.
