(Albany, NY, June 30, 2010) – Job postings in the Capital Region dropped again this past week, coming in at just over 4850, down from 5100 last week and 5600 the previous week.

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,
