Job Postings Drop After Huge Run Up

(Albany, NY, May 18, 2011) – Job postings dropped about 7% this past week, cooling after a huge 21% increase the week before. Job postings came in at just about 3900 the past week. “It is not unusual to see a bit of drop off after two prior weeks of significant increases. Employers are still reporting robust hiring plans, both in national and our own local employment index survey so the picture remains bright. This is especially good news for recent college grads returning to the area after graduation; they will find a stronger job market and jobs to go to – much better than the past few years”, stated Dan Moran, Founder & President of Next-Act (, a career transition management firm located in Colonie.

Job postings decreased in all New York State market as well, after showing strong increases last week as well.
