Job Postings Jump 11% Last Seven Days

(Albany, NY,  July 4, 2012) – At a time when not expected, just before a holiday, job postings in the region increased 11% over the previous week, coming in at 1800 – where they were two weeks ago. Similar results were reported for all other NYS markets. “Normally the days leading up to a major holiday see job postings drop rather sharply given employees time off and business closures for the holiday. Not this year – postings actually increased and recovered back to the level of two weeks ago when we saw a 20% increase. This past few days we also saw postings crack 2000 on a day-by-day basis – a new high”, commented Dan Moran, of Next-Act (, a career transition management firm located in Colonie.

“We are now in the third quarter of the year when analysts forecasted a better quarter for hiring – perhaps we are seeing this start which would be welcomed news for job seekers and the business community as a whole”.

Other markets in NYS increased as well. The Capital Region still outpaces Buffalo, Rochester and Syracuse, all larger markets with more employers and population.
