Job Postings in Region Drop Significantly on Heels of Holiday

(Albany, NY, November 30, 2011) – Job postings in the region dropped significantly from 3880 to just over 2500 on the heels of the long Thanksgiving holiday, which was expected. However, analyst caution that the overall number is well below 2010. “The market dropped this past seven days as we have seen in the history and this was expected. However, the region’s job postings are hitting some all time lows, which is concerning. There appears to be a malaise in the market – employers are just holding back on hiring looking for some sign of improvement” stated Dan Moran, Founder & President of Next-Act (, a career transition management firm located in Colonie.

“For job seekers, not great news but if history proves right, the market will be stronger next week – so keep your efforts strong. Do not get caught up in the holiday myth – jobs do not go away during the holiday period – jobs are fueled by demand so keep your efforts strong”.

Similar results were posted in other NYS markets. Our region continues to outpace other NYS markets, with the exception of metro NYC, and our Region is much smaller. Postings in the Buffalo – Rochester- Syracuse are were just over 2000 again this week.
