ALBANY – The job market is still in a slump, but the Capital Region is fairing better than other areas in New York.

Job postings in the region are up slightly from last week.

It’s a welcome change after the previous week’s 16% decline in job opportunities.

Next Act, a career transition management firm in Colonie, says the Capital Region continues to outpace other areas of New York. Buffalo, Rochester and Syracuse are all larger markets with more employers but fewer job openings.

Nationally the job market is holding steady after a major dive over the last few weeks.
