Job Postings Flat and Unchanged Past Seven Days

(Albany, NY, August 4, 2010) – Job postings in the Capital Region remained flat the past seven days, and unchanged from last week after we saw an increase over the past several weeks. Postings were just over 4900, down very slightly from 5000 last week. “ The first few weeks in August are historically a bit slower for hiring activity, given the number of vacations so this is not unexpected. However, what is very interesting is while the Capital Region was flat, all other markets in NYS showed increases – with a significant increase in metro New York which is consistent with other reports of brisk hiring activity in NYC – always good news”, 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.

Moran continued, “While many turn down their search activity believing wrongly that jobs are not filled in Summer (there is no statistical basis to back this up), this is a time to turn up your activity if you are seeking a new job as the competition will be less”.

# 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.
