Job Postings Up Slightly – Break 5000 first time in four weeks

(Albany, NY, July 28, 2010) – Job postings in the Capital Region rose again this past week slightly, coming in at just about 5050, which is an increase over the previous week (4950) continuing to improve for the third week after several downward trend weeks. “ While the increase was very slight, I appears to be an indication that the job market is coming off of the downward trend we saw in June and July. The number of postings this week compared to last year at this time shows a significant increase. Last year at this time there were just about 3700 job postings”, 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 (Buffalo, Rochester, Syracuse) saw mixed results with some markets up, some down. The Capital Region continues to have the highest number of job postings, more than Buffalo, Rochester and Syracuse, markets that are much larger than this region.

# 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. 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.
