Job Postings Reverse Last Week – Up Slightly

(Albany, NY, March 28, 2012) – After a one week slight drop, job postings returned to increase mode which has been consistent for the month of March, a prime month for hiring in our Region. More hiring is conducted in the period of March through June than any other period of the year. “Overall the month of March is appearing to close out up in the number of job postings, a leading indicator of hiring. Employers post open jobs and typically fill those jobs in 30 to 45 days, so this is an excellent indicator of hiring to occur”, stated Dan Moran, Founder & President of Next-Act (, a career transition management firm located in Colonie. Postings for the 7 day period were 1727, up from 1665 the week prior. A quarterly report will be filed next week.

“We should see the 1st quarter to be strong, but not as strong as last year. It is important to note that in 2011, employers were posting jobs in a robust manner leading to some huge gains, but that fizzled at the end of the second quarter. This year we are seeing slower, steadier growth that is more healthy and predicable”.

For only the second time in 4 years, Syracuse eclipsed the Albany Region this week with just over 1800 job postings. Syracuse is also about 25% larger than this Region in population and number of employers. Other markets in NYS were either flat or down slightly.
