Job Market Jumps Sharply – Shunning off effects of government shutdown

Albany, NY,  October 2, 2013) –  The Regional, National and Statewide job markets shunned off the effects, albeit early, of the government shutdown and kicked into high gear the past seven days with very strong results in new job postings, a leading indicator of hiring to occur shortly.  “We have seen a marked increase in jobs, after a week of two of cooling not uncommon this time of the year, and this indicator is very good as I have been forecasting for several weeks. The market is strong – the opportunities are there for those in the job market”, stated Dan Moran, of Next-Act (, a career transition management firm located in Colonie.

Moran added, “In my 25 years in this business I have never seen a third quarter so strong for jobs. The opportunities are there for those who want them”.  In addition, Moran also commented on the seasonal hiring situation. “The good news is that Amazon announced hiring 70,000 seasonal workers for the holidays – more than ever before. The not-so-good news – retailers are hinting lower hiring plans for the holidays. It remains to be seen how this all plays out”.

Other markets in NYS posted similar results up significantly from the week prior.  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 very strongly as well.  Postings were 619,000 up smartly from  553,000 the week before .
