Job Postings Up Very Slightly – Reversing Recent Trends

(Albany, NY, November 2, 2011) – Job postings were up slightly to just about 3800, up from 3600 the week prior reversing a downward trend seen the past several weeks. “Has holiday hiring begun and affecting the local job market? It may be that holiday hiring has finally kicked in and retailers and other businesses are starting to staff up for the upcoming holiday season, which was expected to occur for the past few weeks, and that is good news in an otherwise down market”, stated Dan Moran, Founder & President of Next-Act (, a career transition management firm located in Colonie. “We have watched job opportunities diminish in the region and as of this week across the State as well; maybe we are seeing a turn for the better which would be a good sight for the market and certainly job seekers”.

Holiday hiring is expected to be up from last year based on information released to the market. Federal Express lone is looking to hire 20,000 seasonal workers, a full 20% more than last year. “This can be a great opportunity to get back into the market if unemployed”, Moran continued.
