Buffalo, NY – The area's unemployed are being encouraged to take advantage of free job training services in Western New York. One-Stop Career Centers are located in downtown at the Buffalo Employment Training Center and at ECC's Orchard Park campus.

Local leaders say with the national recession and layoffs, help is free of charge for those out of work. The centers are experiencing a big jump in those seeking job training. Colleen Cummings is a director for the Buffalo Employment and Training Center. She says the job seekers run the spectrum from a mature to younger worker.

Job seekers were out in full force Monday at the Buffalo Employment and Training Center.
