Job Postings Drop Back after Strong Week
(Albany, NY, September 26, 2012) – After a very strong week last week, when job postings soared by 20% in one week alone, the market cooled a bit and every market in NYS was slightly down from the week before. “It was quite and increase and often we see this occur – a good strong week with a week to follow that is slightly off. The good news – we held the increase showing marked improvement in the Regional job market, as well as in other markets in the state. In the Capital Region, postings came in at 1670, slightly below last week’s 1,740”, stated Dan Moran, of Next-Act (www.next-act.com), a career transition management firm located in Colonie.
As stated, other markets in NYS were slightly down as well. The Capital Region still outpaces Buffalo, Rochester and Syracuse, all larger markets with more employers and population.
National Job Scene
How many job postings are there in the United States today? We will be watching this nationally going forward.
As of 9/26/12, there were, on a seven-day-average, 557,225 national job postings, down 7.4% . “Employers seem to be holding back for sure on hiring and I think this will be the case through Election Day or end of the year”, stated Moran. indicating a more sluggish national market than our Region. The top five areas for the most jobs per capita remain unchanged: San Jose, CA, Washington DC, Boston, MA, Raleigh, NC and Oklahoma City, OK. There is one job posting per unemployed person in each of these markets meaning the market is much less competitive.
