Abstract

Despite the importance of Labour Market Information (LMI) to career practice, there is a surprising lack of theory that focuses on LMI and how it supports career guidance. Building on previous work, especially by Staunton and Rogosic (2021), this paper will argue for a move toward a critical realist
account of LMI that sees it as historically and politically
positioned, rather than objectively verifiable on its own
terms. This opens up new possibilities for how career
practitioners can make use of LMI and fresh avenues
for theory and research.
