Job Postings Jump Significantly – Rebound after holiday and Stronger Market Overall

(Albany, NY,  June 4 , 2013) –  Job postings increased significantly the past seven days – from 1800 to just about 2090 – a very healthy rebound from the holiday week and this shows continued strength in the Regional job market. “ This is just good to see and as I called it last week, we would see a strong rebound after the holiday – and it has occurred. This seven-day average is only the second time we have broken over 2000 job postings in a week in better than one and one-half years – in fact, this is one of the strongest reports since the recession really took hold in 2009. Job seekers rejoice and to those on the sideline thinking that now may be the time, rest assured, it is – start your search now!”, stated Dan Moran, of Next-Act (, a career transition management firm located in Colonie.

Other markets in NYS showed similar results with a strong increase in Buffalo as a highlight. Like an old record, the Capital Region continues to still outpace Buffalo, Rochester and Syracuse, all larger markets with more employers and population.
