The Employment and Training Institute developed three booklets and curriculum guides on job opportunities and career planning for Milwaukee Public Schools. The booklets are designed to help students use local labor market information and resources in their career planning. The economy is constantly changing because of new technology, shifting consumer demands, international developments and changing demographic trends. This "snapshot" of the labor market, based on local job openings surveys of thousands of Milwaukee area employers, is presented to help students "learn how to keep learning" about their community. Students are encouraged to think about "making" as well as "taking" jobs and to consider career pathways that offer expanding opportunities for challenging jobs throughout their lifetimes.
