Job Market Rebounds – Signs  of Spring? 

(Albany, NY, February 26, 2014) Is there signs of Spring – might be says Dan Moran who tracks the job market regionally, statewide and nationally. Job postings in our market were strong this past week, and the same is true for other NYS markets. “ We have seen a good jump in job postings this past seven days across all the sectors I track. In our Region, postings were up and in other NYS markets, the same. The spring months – March through June are critical and strong job numbers set the stage of 2014. The indicators are pointing to a strong spring and the financial markets are supporting this”,   stated Dan Moran, President and Founder of Next–Act, a career transition management firm in Colonie. 

“In addition, a recent survey by the Siena Research Institute indicates strong optimism on the part of regional CEO’s as we enter into the spring months – and that is very important. Optimism develops jobs and that is what every region needs”, continued Moran. “ When Spring hits, the region will respond – sharply!”. 

Job postings in the Capital Region were 1903 compared to  1814 a week ago which is a good indicator. Other markets in NYS posted similar results – an increase from the week prior. 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 was up as well but very slightly. Postings were 574,000 compared to 566,275 the week before.
