Chanelle Howelle, who describes herself as a 'recruiting guru,' explains what 'September surge' is and why job seekers must be prepared for it.
If you are a job-seeker in America, you may have been having a difficult time on the recruitment front. The country is going through one of the biggest economic downturns in recent times which has caused multiple companies to initiate mass layoffs, as per Business Insider. Statista showcased that more than 6 million people in America were struggling with unemployment till July of this year. However, not all hope is lost. In such stressful times, Chanelle Howelle (@chanelle.howell) has come with positive news that September will be a great month for individuals actively looking for jobs. She suggests people get their resumes and LinkedIn profiles ready for the upsurge in job advertisements, which according to her estimate will happen this month. In her viral TikTok video, she gives various reasons to back up her argument.
Chanelle Howell describes herself as a “recruiting guru” in her bio. She also has experience in reality shows, having been part of "Survivor." She regularly posts content related to job opportunities in order to help her viewers. Her "September-surge" video has garnered a lot of traction scoring 713,000 views and 70,000 likes. The text overlay informs the viewers of the core message present in the video, “You have the best probability of landing a job in September."
Howell starts off the video by drawing the viewers' attention to the upcoming September, especially for Job-seekers, “If you’ve been looking for a job and haven’t had any luck, pay attention, because September surge is happening." Thereafter she goes on to give the various reasons behind her assertion. She explains that September is mostly the month corporations begin hiring new talent and, therefore, it is important that candidates are on the lookout for it. Companies have an unspent budget that they are ready to invest to increase their team, with many executives returning from their vacation looking for innovations.
Howell goes on to warn the candidates that they should not wait when it comes to applying for the jobs. The longer they will wait, the more tougher the road will be to getting the offer. Quick response will help the employees in having the opportunity to go through the process at a quick pace. Howell is not the only one validating the 'September-surge' phenomenon, publications like Buzzfeed and Essence have also reported on it.

I interviewed for my current job end of August last year. Offer by September started in October. Get ready you all." @jvochan got a new lease of positivity, "I really hope this is the truth because I’m really ready to get to work by October!"
