Job Market Report 1 30 13

Flat this week - but better than last year!

For Immediate release

January 30, 2013

Job Postings Flat Past Seven Days -

(Albany, NY,  January 30, 2013) –  Job postings in our region and in the state were flat the past seven days. After a good run up after the holidays , the market has cooled a bit, not unusual for this time of the year. “ While the market has been flat the exciting news is that there are plenty of new companies posting jobs – large and small – and that is a good sign as the jobs are across all types on industries and sizes of companies. This opens more opportunities for more people – and that is good”, stated Dan Moran, of Next-Act (, a career transition management firm located in Colonie.

Postings came in at just about 1525, down from 1575 the week prior.  “The market continues to be  stronger than last year at this point – a trend that is continuing - and that continues to be a good sign. 2013 is looking, at least at this point, to be better than 2012”.  

Other markets in NYS saw similar results. The Capital Region continues to still outpace Buffalo, Rochester and Syracuse, all larger markets with more employers and population.  

National Job Scene

Job postings were flat nationally as well. As of 1/30/2013  there were 525,105 job postings this past seven days, from 523,332 the week prior, a very small change.
