Job Postings up 5% from Last Week after being Flat or Decreases Past Few Weeks

(Albany, NY, August 31, 2011) – Job postings were up about 5% last week in spite of the disruptions of Hurricane Irene in the Region, reversing a downward or flat trend seen in the past few weeks. Postings came in at just about 4670, which is better than weeks past.

“This is good to see after witnessing the attention the past several days on Irene. Typically news disruptions of this type affect the local job market; it appears not to have this past week which is good. We will, as expected, see a drop off this coming week with the Labor Day holiday, that should be short lived if history is an indication”, stated Dan Moran, Founder & President of Next-Act (, a career transition management firm located in Colonie.

Job postings were the same in other NYS markets – up slightly. Albany is the smallest market in size when compared to the other markets outside of NYC and continues to outpace with more job postings.
