For Immediate Release
For Information: Dan Moran 518641-8968

Job Market In Region shows  gain – similar results statewide

(Albany, NY, March 26, 2014) After a bit of a lull, the job market in the Capital Region posted an incase the past seven days. It does appear that seasonal hiring is just beginning to take hold and this should continue as the weather improves  “March has been and up and down month. Many are blaming this on the weather, and I tend to concur. Seasonal hiring was stalled. As well, employers just seemed a bit more reluctant to post new jobs in March. We didn't have a strong week since the last week of February but that appears to be changing, good for those in the job market for sure”,   stated Dan Moran, President and Founder of Next–Act, a career transition management firm in Colonie.  

Moran continued, “As well, the past few days – Monday to today specifically, I have see some rather impressive day-by-day numbers over 2000 daily postings which I have not seen in awhile. This points to a good positive trend, and I hope it continues”. 

Job postings in the Capital Region were 1990 compared to  approx. 1900 a week ago. Rochester and Buffalo Syracuse posted rather strong gains the past seven days. However, Syracuse as flat. The Capital Region still outpaces 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.  Postings were 639,750, down slightly from 650,000 the week before.
