For Information: Dan Moran, 518-641-8968

(Albany, NY, April 27, 2011) – After a slight rebound, job postings dropped just over 15% this past week on the heels of the Easter and Passover holiday along with school breaks which is not unusual when the holidays and school breaks align. " The market is still showing weakness and an inability to rebound as it did in 2010. With job postings at just about 3450 this week, that is the same as 2009 when we were deep in the effects of the recession. My hope is that this is holiday influenced and not a trend which if that occurs, would signal a continued slowdown", reports Dan Moran, Founder & President of Next-Act (, a career transition management firm located in Colonie.

Job postings were down in all other New York State markets by about the same percentage which may evidence a holiday slowdown and not a trend alone to the Capital Region. It is also important to note that Albany is the smallest market in size when compared to the other markets and continued to outpace with more job postings within an areas of smaller population.
