Here’s a Free Resource to Help You Find a Job in Niagara County
If you are a job-seeker in Niagara County, there is an amazing resource that not only provides job leads but things like bus passes, resume-writing and more. I had a chance to chat with Bonnie from the Niagara County Workforce Development Board about what they offer. It seems like an amazing, free tool for residents of Niagara County.
Their offices are located at 272 S. Transit Street in Lockport and the Trott Building located at 1001 Eleventh Street in Niagara Falls. Lots of folks have been out of work since the pandemic, but the Niagara County Workforce Development Board is here to help you change that, if you're one of those people.
