Job Market Report - December 19, 2013 - Holiday Slumber ...

For Immediate Release
For Information: Dan Moran 518-641-8968

On The Brink of the Holidays, Job Market begins to Cool

It isn’t only the weather that has cooled, but the job market has as well nationally, regionally and statewide, fully expected this time of the year. “As holidays approach, job postings begin to dwindle as employers plan for extended periods of closure, especially this year with two Wednesday holidays, that affect business for two weeks. We have had a nice past few weeks buoyed by strong national hiring reports which has been very good”, stated Dan Moran, President and Founder of Next-Act, a career transition management firm in Colonie.

Job postings in the Capital Region were 1667 compared to 1857 the week prior. Other markets in NYS saw similar down results. The Capital Region still outpaced Buffalo, Rochester and Syracuse for jobs in the market and the Capital Region is much smaller in population and employment than other NYS markets.

“ In addition, it is also important to remember that the number of job postings is a forward view of hiring; there will be a fair amount of hiring to occur through the balance of the year to meet the needs of postings that hit the market the past few weeks. In other words – if you are looking, don’t stop – gear it up even more”. 

National Job Market

Nationally the market is cooling as well in advance of the holiday. There were 493,400 job postings the past week, compared to 503,300 the week before.
