State Labor Commissioner Peter Rivera announced Wednesday that approximately 250,000 New Yorkers who sought help at one of the department’s career center locations landed a job in 2012.

Nationwide, just over one million people were hired using states’ workforce career centers. New York career centers were responsible for a quarter of the nation’s hires in 2012.
