New partnership created to help BK residents find jobs

A new partnership between the city's jobs placement program, Workforce1, and the Brooklyn Public Library is aiming to give Brooklyn residents a better chance at finding work.

The partnership will put Workforce1 career centers in Brooklyn's public libraries, meaning residents can look for a job, check email and everything in between all in one place.

Mayor Michael Bloomberg says that Workforce1 helped 35,000 New Yorkers find jobs last year, and he wants to see that number increase in 2012.
