Job Postings Rebound Sharply After Holiday Weeks – Sign of Confidence and Strength 

(Albany, NY) Jobs in the Capital Region rebounded sharply the past week as business returned to normal after the two-week holiday break. On a day by day basis, job opportunities rebounded very well starting right after New Year’s Day climbing by close to 40% over the past few days. "What that shows in not a slowdown but rather , a break caused by the holiday period. Employers seem bullish and confident; that is good news as we head into a very active hiring period”, stated Dan Moran, President and Founder of Next–Act, a career transition management firm in Colonie  “If history proves right, this will continue and by the second or third week of January the market will be at pre-holiday levels – and stay there or grow more”.

Job postings in the Capital Region were 1390 compared to 985  the week prior, a very strong rebound .Other markets in NYS saw similar improved results but not at a level as we saw in the Capital Region. 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.

National Job Market

Nationally the market has improved off the holiday weeks as well. .  There were 479,000 postings this past week on average daily basis compared to 307,500 the prior week.  “ Again – a stronger rebound”.
