Job Postings Down Slightly Last Seven Days – Close to 3000 higher than last year

(Albany, NY, May 27, 2010) – Job postings in the Capital Region were slightly lower this past seven days, a trend seen across New York State as well. However, while down less than 3%, postings were still close to 3000 higher than the same period last year. “This slight decrease is fully expected as we enter a long holiday weekend. Historically job market activity slows the week before and the week after a major holiday. Job postings the last seven days averaged 6250 and that is very good”, stated Dan Moran, Founder & President of Next-Act (, a career transition management firm located in Colonie. Moran assists individuals in identifying new careers and also those in the midst of a job search and needing direction. His firm also tracks the job market on a regional and statewide basis.

Other markets in New York State showed similar results. The Capital Region continues to outpace Buffalo, Rochester and Syracuse for job postings. The Capital Region is the smallest of all these markets as well.

Job postings in the Region are normally in the baseline of 4000 – 4900 on a weekly basis and 7-day rolling average, consistent for this area. Monitoring job postings is a leading indicator of hiring within the following 30-45 days. This methodology is utilized by reading research houses nationally and is employed in the Region by Moran’s firm. For the purpose of reporting, the Region is defined as a 50 mile radius of Albany.
