Job Postings in Region Drop During Holiday Week as Expected … What should Job Seekers do? -

(Albany, NY, December 28, 2011) – Job postings in the Region slumped considerably this past week given the downturn of business activity associated with the holiday period. Postings came in at just over 1850 – a new low for the year – but no unexpected. “We see this every holiday week at the end of the year as business activity is way below normal and people take time off as well. As a result there is little new jobs posted for the period and it will not pick up again, if history proves right, until after the 1st week in January”, stated Dan Moran, Founder & President of Next-Act (, a career transition management firm located in Colonie.

Similar results were posted in other NYS market. The Albany Region continues to outpace Buffalo, Rochester and Syracuse, which are larger markets, with more job opportunities.

Next-Act’s Tip of the Week to Job Seekers

So what does one do this week and next when activity will likely be low? “Focus on finding out once and for all what you really want to do in your career. Many simply continue to look for the same type of job over and over again, when they really do not enjoy what they do. Take this down time to reflect and consider – what do I really want to do in my career that will make me happy, fulfilled and productive. Being in the wrong job or career I like trying to dance with shoes that do not fit – you may look good, but you are hurting. 80% of your waking life is focused on working or thinking about it – should you not enjoy that time?”, continued Moran.
