Job Market Turns Corner For Better – Slight Increase Reported

Albany, NY,  November 6, 2013) –  The job market continued to be rather soft, not showing the growth we should be seeing this time of the year, especially with seasonal hiring. The good news – the market did not slide further back. Continued uncertainty over the Affordable Health Care Plan (aka Obamacare) still is weighing on the market and has been on the forefront of news and this trend likely will continue. “The market has turned a slight corner and is looking a bit better on all fronts, with the exception of NYC. There may be some confidence or just demand of seasonal hiring occurring that has caused the slump to stop – and that is good news finally after several weeks of caution”,  stated Dan Moran, of Next-Act (, a career transition management firm located in Colonie.

In the Capital Region, postings were 1989 up slightly from 1834 the week prior. Other markets in NYS posted similar results slight increases as well, with the exception of NYC.  The Capital Region continues to still outpace Buffalo, Rochester and Syracuse, all larger markets with more employers and population.  

National Job Scene
