Job Postings in Region Increase – Stronger Holiday Season ahead

(Albany, NY, December 6, 2011) – Job postings in the region increased a few hundred, a welcome sign that holiday hiring has kicked in and employers are seeking some glimmers of hope in a difficult and concerning economy. Postings were up to 2650, up 5% over the previous week, a holiday week, when little improvement was expected. “ This is welcomed news as it appears that holiday hiring – which many people count upon – is finally occurring – if not rather late - and this is positive for those in the job market today”, stated Dan Moran, Founder & President of Next-Act (, a career transition management firm located in Colonie.

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 2200 again this week.

  1. Your report for one year ago this week (12/8/10) had 4600 postings. Almost 2000 more than now. That seems like a big difference to me and a troubling stat.
