Job Postings Begin to Increase after Holiday Period

(Albany, NY, January 4, 2012) – Job postings in the Region began to increase day by day over the past few days as many businesses returned from extended holidays vacation time which significantly impacts the Region’s job market for a few weeks. Postings made a nice rebound the past seven days to 2300 after a low of just 1850 the week before. “History has shown that when we enter the holiday week, postings slump considerable. What we look for is the rebound and how strong the rebound is as an indicator of the future. It appears that this rebound is much stronger than last year perhaps signaling that employers are more confident about early year hiring – and then is just good news for all”, stated Dan Moran, Founder & President of Next-Act (, a career transition management firm located in Colonie.

Tuesday January 3rd Big Day for Job Postings

“On this day, local employers posted close to 1100 new positions to various job boards in the Region. That is a very active day and not something I have seen for several months. Perhaps this is yet another sign of an improving market”, reported Moran.

The Syracuse NY market also had a strong rebound after the holiday week. Other markets remained at pre-holiday levels for new job opportunities. 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

“Take this time this week and not later to be sure your job search “tools” – resume, online profiles or any other manner in which you communicate your skills and abilities are in top-notch shape. Be sure your resume and profiles don’t just “tell” but “sell” what you can do and the skills you can bring. It will make a world of difference in your results”, continued Moran.
