(Albany, NY, March 6, 2013) – Job postings soared significantly this past week which may be consistent with the stock market increases as they reached a new high. “What a turn-around. The job market rocketed upwards the past week consistent with the stock market, showing consistency and confidence” stated Dan Moran, of Next-Act (www.next-act.com), a career transition management firm located in Colonie.
Postings were 1809 vs. 1520 the week before, a rather healthy increase.
