A pause - likely the result of the Boston siutation - my prayers to all affected ...

For Immediate Release

April 17, 2013

Job Postings Continue Strong Trends but down slightly

(Albany, NY,  April 17 , 2013) –  Job postings dropped very slightly after a strong run up, likely the result of the Boston situation. “ Job postings started to drop right after the Boston terrorist attacks and this dampened the market a bit, but very slightly. Postings came in at 1866, down from 1966 the week before, a very minor change”, stated Dan Moran, of Next-Act (, a career transition management firm located in Colonie.

Other markets in NYS showed similar results. “The market took a pause during the uncertainty of the Boston attacks”, continued Moran. 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 down very slightly nationally. As of 4/17/13  there were 538,324 compared with 543, 948 the week before.
