Job Postings Flat Last Seven Days

(Albany, NY, October 13, 2010) – Job postings were flat in the Region the past seven days after a week prior when a good increase was noted, signaling that trend is positive after a late Summer/early Fall dip that was rather significant. Job postings were flat at 5700 for the second week in a row. “ It does appear that the slowdown we saw in late Summer and early Fall is over and employers are recruiting to meet hiring needs in the past quarter of 2010 which is usually a robust hiring season. Last year at this time, postings were just about 3500 – so there has been quite a rebound, but not back to the levels we saw this past Spring when we saw 6500 – 7000 postings on a week-to-week basis we are closer to that level now”, 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.
