Capital Region Jobs Rising


The local job market soars to a level of jobs we have not seen for over 5 years, fueled by employer confidence...

Job postings in the Capital Region were 2,477 vs 1,971  the week before, a 26.7% increase. The numbers surprised local job expert Dan Moran:  "I knew the market was poised for growth. I didn't expect this type of a jump. So that's really good news. So we've got a really very strong job market in the Capital Region, close to 2500 jobs out there, so that's very good news for job seekers and for the economy as well."

Moran adds the concern is that employers may not be able to find people with the skills needed to fill those jobs.
