Job Postings Up Slightly – First Tine in Several Weeks

(Albany, NY, July 14, 2010) – Job postings in the Capital Region rose this past week, coming in at just over 4560, which is an increase over the previous week (4300) and reverses a downward trend that has been occurring for the past several weeks. “ This is welcomed news as the trend since mid-May has been down. Hit with a double whammy – the long holiday vacation week and State budget uncertainty, the market was significantly impacted. Let’s hope this is over, and we are seeing a forward growth trend. 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 saw similar increases. The New York City metro market saw a significant bump consistent with recent news reports of hiring in the financial sectors. 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.

# Background#

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.
