Job Market Continues FlatNational job market in a significant stall

Albany, NY,  October 23, 2013) –  When we should be seeing the regional, statewide and national job market perk, we are in a stall – especially on the national front. Job postings have been the same in our region and across the state. Nationally, there should be concern as the market is clearly slumping.  “There are may factors contributing to this – the lingering effects of the government shutdown, and the drama of the Affordable Health Care Act.  Any disruption causes concern, and employers hold back on hiring”, stated Dan Moran, of Next-Act (, a career transition management firm located in Colonie.

“The 4th quarter was thought to be very strong but the prospects appear to be dwindling. There are many factors causing concerns with employers’, and they need to have confidence in our government and policies like health care. It just isn’t there”, continued Moran

In the Capital Region, postings were flat with the week before. The past seven days postings averaged 1831 vs., 1891 the week prior – flat. Other markets in NYS posted similar results flat results this past week.  The Capital Region continues to still outpace Buffalo, Rochester and Syracuse, all larger markets with more employers and population.  

National Job Scene

Nationally the market was down rather sharply with 522,000  job postings reported, as compared to 547,000 the week before and over 619,000 three weeks back. “There is a disturbing tread nationally”.
