Job Market Rolls Back – Very Strong rebound a good sign --- Market to be strong into end of the year
Albany, NY, September 18, 2013) – Recovering from the end of Summer and Labor Day Holiday, the job market roared back in our region and across the State as employers got back to business and that means more job opportunities. Job postings the past seven days were 1940 up from 1770 the week before, a health increase. “September is a month of transition and there is usually a pause in hiring activity the last few weeks of August and into early September – but that is over; the market is stronger that we have seen in quite some time. This is good news for the third and fourth quarters of the year as they may be stringer than the first six months of the year”, stated Dan Moran, of Next-Act (www.next-act.com), a career transition management firm located in Colonie.
Other markets in NYS posted similar results in recovery and strong job postings. The Capital Region continues to still outpace Buffalo, Rochester and Syracuse, all larger markets with more employers and population.

On the national level, job postings rebounded as well. Postings were 575,000 up from 546,000 the week before .
