Montana Department of Labor & Industry Refreshes Websites
New Features Provide Job Seekers Improved Labor Market Information Tools
 
The Research & Analysis Bureau of the Montana Department of Labor & Industry (DLI) is excited to announce significant updates to www.careers.mt.gov and www.lmi.mt.gov. These websites provide current labor market and career information for Montana job seekers, students seeking career guidance information, and policy makers.

Major improvements in functionality include:
• Faster page loading times
• Automatic data updates upon time of release
• Rebuilt search tool that now let’s job seekers build custom reports from labor market data
• Previously unavailable job data sets

Other improvements include the ability to share monthly labor market and career information publications directly to social media platforms from the websites and charts, graphs and maps that are directly driven from the department’s Workforce Information Database (WID).

“These updated websites provide needed labor market information for job seekers who are looking for guidance, whether they are new to Montana’s workforce or if they are looking to move to another career path,” said Labor & Industry Commissioner Pam Bucy.

The Research & Analysis Bureau provides labor market information for Montana’s workforce through a partnership with the Bureau of Labor Statistics and the Employment & Training Administration, including data for employment, unemployment, wages, injuries and illnesses, and other labor market information.
