Job Market Report - 9 24 13 - slighty off but not concerning ...

Job Market Cools Slightly – but on higher levels

Albany, NY,  September 24, 2013) –  The Regional, National and Statewide job market cooled very slightly this past week, after a strong run-up the week before, which is not uncommon. “ The market usually cools a bit after a significant and strong increase the week prior, especially as we saw last week. The market is strong and job seekers are reporting to me that they are seeing more and better jobs the past few weeks, which is a good indicator. In addition, the NYS unemployment rate is falling again – another good sign”, stated Dan Moran, of Next-Act (, a career transition management firm located in Colonie.

Moran added, “The dark cloud is holiday hiring by retailers that is projected to be lower this season with economic uncertainty continuing. It is very important that anyone seeking a holiday position begin to apply and interview now and don’t wait – the competition will become more intense very soon”.

Other markets in NYS posted similar results with flat or slightly lower job postings.  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 rebounded as well.  Postings were 553,000 down slightly from 575,000 the week before .
