Job Postings Drop Very Slightly Flat Last Seven Days

(Albany, NY, October 20, 2010) – Job postings dropped very slightly in the Region over the past seven days demonstrating that the job market continues to be flat without any real gains that would normally be seen this time of the year. Postings came in at just over 5500, down from 5700 the week prior. “We are not seeing signs to a return to job growth with numbers consistent to support growth, and this continues to be concerning, especially after seeing significant growth in the Spring and early Summer, “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.

Syracuse and metro New York City saw increase the past seven days; other new your state markets were flat, Moran added. 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.
