Job Postings Increase Past Seven Days in Region even in Holiday Week – Defies Statewide and National Trends
(Albany, NY, July 10, 2013) – Job postings increased the past seven days in the Capital Region in a week when we normally see rather sharp decreases the result of the holiday. “Much to my surprise, postings increased in the Region during the normally slower 4th of July holiday week indicating continued strength in jobs within the Region. Statewide markets were all down and nationally rather significantly” stated Dan Moran, of Next-Act (www.next-act.com), a career transition management firm located in Colonie. Moran added,
Postings were 1800 vs. 1715 the week prior.
Other markets in NYS were all down sharply. 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 475,500 compared with 530,500 the week before..
