Job Market In Region, Statewide and Nationally Springs Ahead
(Albany, NY, May 7, 2014) The Region’s job market, after a period of holding steady which is good , showed stronger signs of stability and some growth this past week after all sectors – Regionally, Statewide and Nationally — sprang ahead after weeks of holding steady. This is on the heels of a strong national job report last week, reporting 288,000 jobs created in April – sorely needed. “ We are seeing the effect of seasonal hiring taking hold and employer confidence which we need to see this time of the year or 2014 would be a dud in regard to jobs. I have been touting the consistency in the market; we did need to see a breakout week and this may have been it, especially the past few days with very strong activity – good news for all”, stated Dan Moran, President and Founder of Next–Act, a career transition management firm in Colonie.
“Numbers are showing that the early part of the year – January and February were very soft as I was reporting, but March showed some growth and the strength seems to be building”.
Job postings in the Capital Region were up to 2068 up from 1962 a week ago. Other markets in NYS were all up as well including metro NYC with a very large increase. 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 way up to approx. 651,500 from 597,000 last week. “ The surge is happening nationally as well”.
