Job Postings Flat – Effect of State Layoffs Loom

(Albany, NY, September 28, 2011) – Job postings, a leading indicator of 30-45 day future hiring , were flat this past week in the Region after a slight increase the week before. Other markets in NYS except Albany were up this week. Postings came in at just over 4300, up from 4280 the week prior.

“The compounded effect of the Governor’s announcement of new nanotech jobs to the Region and the PEF down vote of the State contract all happened within a few hours and we have not seen the effect on the local numbers but we will see shortly as this all shakes out. The Region’s postings have been somewhat anemic in the recent past and the up and down news will likely result in a cooling of local hiring as the market tends to react in that manner if history is any indicator, “stated Dan Moran, Founder & President of Next-Act (, a career transition management firm located in Colonie.

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