Job Postings Soar Past Seven Days – Capital Region, New York State and National
(Albany, NY, July 17, 2013) – Job postings increased last week during a normally slower period and this past seven days, have soared in all areas and geographic areas. “This increase is significant – a 23% increase in one week in our Region – and you do not see that often. Results were consistent in other New York State markets and as well, nationally which has lagged behind. This sets up a very strong indicator for the third quarter which started July 1st and is good news for all”,” stated Dan Moran, of Next-Act (www.next-act.com), a career transition management firm located in Colonie. Moran added, “It is important that job seekers not put their resumes on the shelf thinking jobs and hiring are down in the Summer – there is no truth to this at all and the numbers show it. Be sharp, be connected and be aggressive as the market, like the weather, is hot right now.
Postings were 2230 vs. 1806 the week prior.
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 sharply during the holiday week. Postings were 536,000 compared with 475,000 the week before, up a healthy 18%.
