Job Postings Down Slightly Again – Effect of holiday still lingering

(Albany, NY, June 9, 2010) – Job postings in the Capital Region were lower this past seven days from the week before, coming in at just about 5500, down 300 from the previous week. On a day-by-day basis, postings were weak right after the holiday and picked up steam by the weekend. “As I forecasted, the week after the holiday was a bit lighter as history has shown always happens but then postings picked up toward the end of the week and have been very good these past few days”, 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.

“As a comparison, last year at this time, there were just a shade over 3000 job postings, so we are still seeing a health increase in jobs and employer confidence which I hope will continue”.

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. Other NYS markets saw some increases this past seven days,
