Job Market Report April 25, 2012

Sadly the numbers seem stuck .. market is flat, but do not let this deter you! ___________________________________________________________________________________________ For Information: Dan Moran, 518-641-8968 April 25, 2012 Job Postings Flat; Market Appears Stalled (Albany, NY, April 25, 2012) – When the Regional job market should be seeing signs of growth, it appears that employers have put the brakes on hiring, and this is concerning. So states Dan Moran who tracks job activity daily. “This is the season where we historically see a significant increase in hiring activity for the Spring and early Summer and it is not happening. All signs now point to the fact that the job market has weakened in our Region – a Region that typically outpaces the State and nation just when it appeared a stronger recovery was on the horizon. This appears to be consistent with national reports that show that the unemployment rate is not changing or improving and new jobs have slowed,” stated Moran, of Next-Act (, a career transition management firm located in Colonie. “There is a concerning slow down in the job market and therefore economic recovery”. Job postings were 1650 this past seven days, down from 1700 the week prior. “The increases we saw a few weeks ago have evaporated”. To those in the market today looking for a new job Moran recommends, “Don’t get hung up on the numbers. While the market is softer there are still great jobs in the market so don’t let the ups and downs of the numbers concern you”. Other markets in NYS posted similar results, up or down slightly. Metro NYC has been languishing as of late with the overall market being down some 40-50-% signaling a regional issue, and consistent with national reports.
