What do researchers do? Labour market information
Labour market information (LMI) is an important career guidance resource, providing context, data and practical information to inform the career decision making process. The Vitae '‘What do researchers do?' series of publications inform researchers studying and holding doctoral qualifications, as well as researcher developers, on the career destinations of doctoral graduates. These publications have expanded the range and nature of labour market information available to researchers and also offer insights into the labour market based on individual career stories.
This labour market information resource builds on the 'What do researchers do?' publications to provide:
- in-depth analysis of the main employment sectors for doctoral graduates, including the roles doctoral graduates commonly occupy in these industries, analysis of skills needs and opportunities in the sectors in the future, and comprehensive links to relevant information
- profiles on some of the most important occupations for doctoral graduates, including numbers of doctoral graduates entering these jobs and their disciplinary backgrounds
- advice on using labour market information to assist with career planning
