Job Market Report September 19 2012

Job market takes a big step forward - YEA!

For Immediate release

September 19, 2012

Job Postings Increase Sharply – Almost 20% in one week!

(Albany, NY,  September 19, 2012) – After waffling the past few weeks, job postings posted a very strong approximate 20% increase this past seven days indicating a stronger market in our Region, which is excellent news. Postings were about 1740, up from 1450 last week. “Overall the market has been much stronger in this quarter and there is nothing to think that this will stop in the near future, unless there is a significant upheaval in the economic or political markets”, stated Dan Moran, of Next-Act (, a career transition management firm located in Colonie.

Other markets in NYS posted increases however not as strong. The Capital Region still outpaces Buffalo, Rochester and Syracuse, all larger markets with more employers and population.  

NEW – How many job postings are there in the United States today? We will be watching this nationally going forward.

As of 9/19/12, there were,  on a seven-day-average,  570,172 national job postings, down slightly from the week before 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.  

Other markets in NYS were generally down slightly from the week before. The Capital Region still outpaces Buffalo, Rochester and Syracuse, all larger markets with more employers and population.
