Job Market Flat Past Seven Days Showing Strength and Consistency
(Albany, NY, August 21, 2013) – Job postings continued to hold at the highest levels we have seen in quite some time, and analysts agree – this is good. “As I have repeated, consistency is the key – we are holding at higher number of jobs than in recent years, indicating strength in the market and employer confidence – and that is huge!. This is on the heels of a NYS Dept. of Labor report indicating that unemployment was down in all regions of the state indicating that the recovery continues”, stated Dan Moran, of Next-Act (www.next-act.com), a career transition management firm located in Colonie.
Job postings the past seven days were 1990 compared to 1980 the week before – hardly a difference. “ On a day-to-day basis, the Region is producing over 2,000 jobs – and in all sectors it appears. In addition, the public sector has curtailed cutting jobs and the public sector continues to add jobs at a strong pace”.
Other markets in NYS posted similar results. 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 were down slightly at 553,000 compared to 561,000 the week before, up slightly.
