Job Postings Increase Very Slightly Past Seven Days – Still overall from last quarter

(Albany, NY,  October 17, 2012) –  There has been a slight increase in the number of job postings in our region the past seven days. Postings are reported to be 1700 vs. 1635 the prior seven days which while not much of a change, is still better than the first two quarters of this year. “Better but still quite a ways to go, but still consistent which is good”, stated Dan Moran, of Next-Act (, a career transition management firm located in Colonie.

Other markets in NYS were flat 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 10/3/12, there were,  on a seven-day-average,   583, 216, national job postings, up from 542,743 the week prior indicating still a flat market.  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.
