Job Market Slightly Better Past Seven Days

(Albany, NY, February 5, 2014) The job market in the region, state and nationally rebounded a bit after an off week last week showing continued strength and employer confidence. “ We saw a very health run up a few weeks back and then a bit of flatness last week. This past seven days has seen the job market– measured by job postings which are a leading indicator of hiring – rebound this past week which is a good indicator of employer confidence and continuing plans to hire”, stated Dan Moran, President and Founder of Next–Act, a career transition management firm in Colonie. 

“If there is continued turmoil in the financial markets, we will need to watch this carefully as market turmoil usually results n a slowdown in hiring”. 

Job postings in the Capital Region were 1850, up  from 1775 the week prior. Other markets in NYS posted mixed results, especially in Metro NYC where the market dropped significantly. 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 flat up very slightly from the week before. Postings were 599,000 up from 593,000 the week before.
