For Immediate Release

Job Postings Continue to Hold Steady after strong increases – Some softening indicated nationally

(Albany, NY,  June 19, 2013) –  Job postings held steady this past seven days in our Region while the market on a national basis indicated a dramatic, 15% drop which was unexpected for sure.. “ We see again that our Region is somewhat insulated from national trends. We remained rather strong; the national job market dropped rather dramatically and this was a surprise, stated Dan Moran, of Next-Act (, a career transition management firm located in Colonie. Moran added, “ We keep seeing reports that our Region is strong – this is just another indicator – the Capital Region is the place to be”. Postings were approximately 2000 for the past seven days compared to 2100 the week prior.

Other markets in NYS showed similar results with either flat for very slightly lower numbers. The Capital Region continues to still outpace Buffalo, Rochester and Syracuse, all larger markets with more employers and population.  

National Job Scene

On the national level, job postings dropped rather dramatically and this was not expected to occur and could be an indicator for the near term future. Postings were 550,000 compared with 651,000 the week. Prior.
