Job Postings Flat Last Seven Days – But Improving

(Albany, NY, December 1, 2010) – Job postings have been flat at just about 4600, but have been improving by 20% over the past three days, signaling that we are out of the Thanksgiving Holiday lull and returning to hiring, consistent with local surveys showing the same forecast. “Local surveys of employers shoring that employers will pick up hiring in December, and the last three days day-by-day results are showing this to be true, “ 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.

“Holidays put the job market into a lull and we saw this the past few weeks. Let’s hope the positive trend continues”.

Other markets in New York State showed similar results – with very strong results in metro NYC. While a smaller market, the Capital Region still outpaces other NYS markets (with the exception of metro NYC). This has been consistent for well over two years.


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.
