Job Postings Continue Rebound & Increase Slightly Past Week

(Albany, NY, January 19, 2011) – Job postings continued to rebound from lows around the holidays, rising to just over 5200, up from about 4950 last week. The job market appears to be showing strength in the Region, which is welcome news to job seekers and the community at large. “After a 28% increase last week, the market remained steady and strong which is expected and good news, consistent with national reports as well”, 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.

“The time to begin looking for a new job is right now. A recent study by Manpower Inc. reported that 84% of workers are planning on looking for a new job in 2011, the highest ever reported. The market will, therefore, be more competitive so you must be on your “ a-game”, prepared to interview with confidence and diligent in seeking our jobs and opportunities”.

Other markets in New York State were either flat or reported slight decreases in job postings. 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 three 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.
