Job Market Report 12 13 13 - Impressie Rebound!

Job Market Shakes Off Thanksgiving Slowdown – Last few days job postings way up – Especially in Capital Region 

Albany, NY,  December 11, 2013) –  On the heels of a very strong national jobs report with over 203,000 new jobs created in November, the regional and statewide market shook off the holiday slowdown associated with Thanksgiving and in the past week posted nice gains. “The past few days have been very telling. Postings in our region were just about 2,000,  way up from some low points the past week or so. We see the slowdown around holidays for a week or so, and we will see it again at the end of December. For now, the trend is very strong and appears like it will continue right through December and hopefully into the new year”, stated Dan Moran, of Next-Act (, a career transition management firm located in Colonie.

Moran added that the news that Senate and House negotiators are trying to put off a government shutdown in January should help as well. “Disruptions of this type slow the market down with uncertainty; let’s hope that can get the deal done”.

In the Capital Region, postings were 1860 vs. 1675  the week before. Tuesday job postings climbed to 2000 – very impressive. Other markets in NYS saw increases as well.  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 rebounded but not as strongly with national job postings of 503,500 vs. 501,500 the week before. “ Many regions have been slowed”.
