Job Postings Unexpectedly Drop Past Week …

(Albany, NY, August 25, 2010) – Job postings in the Capital Region dropped this past week by close to 5% coming in at just over 5550, down from just over 5800 last week. “This is indeed surprising as history shows that in mid to late August we should see a consistent rise in job postings as employers plan for Fall hiring. This drop, along with other survey results I am tracking, indicates that hiring may be cooling in the Region, not good news for the Region or for job seekers”, 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. “While down, the number of job postings is still much better than last year when at this time we saw just over 3660 job postings”.

“The real indicator will be the first few weeks following the Labor Day holiday when hiring and job posting activity has been historically brisk”, continued Moran.
# 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.
