UTICA, N.Y. – The local Workforce Development Board is offering free online training for those who are unemployed in Herkimer, Madison, Oneida, Chenango, Delaware or Otsego counties.

The Metrix Learning program provides online skill training, job search assistance, assessments, resume reviews and other online tools to help job seekers.

Alice Savino, of the Workforce Investment Board, says this can also help people explore other job paths, and prepare themselves for re-entering the job force during or after the pandemic.

“This gives people something to do, accomplish something while they're there. We all have a little more time. It can show an employer that you wanted to do self-improvement during this time,” said Savino.

She added that there is still work available to those who are looking -- at places like grocery stores, distribution centers and health care facilities.

For more information on the training, Herkimer, Madison and Oneida county residents should visit: www.working-solutions.org.

Those in Chenango, Delaware or Otsego counties can find more information at: www.cdoworkforce.org.
