Future/Trending Labour Market Information
We have more choices than ever before in terms of the kind of career we can have. But lots of choice can also lead to confusion about knowing the right direction. Before you invest your time, money and energy in a career, be sure to conduct lots of research to determine if your occupation will be in demand in the future and if there will be jobs in the cities where you want to live.
What is a “trend”?
A trend is a general direction about something developing or changing. Trends are usually long-term, not simply something popular or in the moment, which might be called a “fad”.
Example: As the population ages, the predicted trend is older people will need more healthcare.
Example: T-shirts with pictures of a singer are popular for about one year. That is a fad.
