Job Postings Post Gain Past Seven Days

(Albany, NY, October 6, 2010) – After dipping slightly the previous seven day, job postings in the Region rebounded and increased for the last week, signaling that the continued dip we say in early Fall appears to be reversing and there is new job growth, great news for job seekers. Postings came in at just about 5700, up from 5250 the previous week, an 8% increase. “This is consistent with some of the surveys I have conducted of employers and others I have read – after a slowdown in late summer and early Fall , there is new hiring activity for the end of the year”, 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 added that markets across New York State saw similar results this past week. While a smaller market, the Capital Region still outpaces other NYS markets (with the exception of metro NYC).


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.
