Job Postings Drop Past Seven days – In Albany as well as across NYS

(Albany, NY, October 12, 2011) – Job postings, a leading indicator of 30-45 day future hiring , dropped just about 10% this pst week in the Albany region as well as in other New York State markets, continuing a lackluster fall hiring season during a period of normally strong hiring activity. “The market is flat – there are some very good jobs in the market but the numbers remain much lower that what the market needs to recoup from the recession. Job postings came in at just over 4000, compared to 5650 last year at this time – a big decline”, stated Dan Moran, Founder & President of Next-Act (, a career transition management firm located in Colonie.

“While down we are still much better than we were in 2009 in the depth of the recession when postings were under 3500 on a week-to-week basis, so there is a bright light. Employers appear to be stuck in an aura of uncertainty and when this happens, they usually curtail hiring activity until a picture is clearer – surely this is happening now as I have learned through discussions and surveys of employers”.

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