Buffalo, Rochester and Syracuse posted declines in job postings for the same period, while Metro NYC saw an increase of just about 6%. “The Capital Region continues to report a health number of job postings, a good 1750 – 2000 better than last year at the same time, which demonstrates a period of rebound which is good news,” stated Dan Moran, Founder & President of Next-Act (, a career transition management firm located in Colonie.
