                 Process: Find Employment in a Related Industry
                 WorkSource staff should use labor market information to help job seekers with finding
                 employment. The Employment and economic information website from LMEA can be used to
                 find employers in a related industry. This should be done when a job seeker has known work
                 skills and recent experience and is willing to do similar work in a related industry.

                 Process Steps:

                 1. Search the Employment and economic information website using the name of the job
                    seeker’s most recent employer.
                 2. Get the first four digits of the previous employer’s NAICS (North American Industry
                    Classification System) code from the employer details screen.
                 3. Search for other employers using the NAICS code.
                 4. Narrow down the search to a specific geographic area.
