Apparently the BEST month of the year to find a new job is... SEPTEMBER. Recruiters and career coaches are predicting that between Labor Day & the end of October is the best time to get a job. It's called the "September Surge."
Laurie Chamberlin, who is the Head of LHH Recruitment Solutions in North America, has been in the industry since 1999 and says, quote, "it is very real."
There could be a few reasons for this:
- It's the end of summer vacation and they're getting ready to end the year strong.
- Budgets: companies are starting their budgets for the next year.
Another month to give applying for a job a shot is January. It’s nearly tied with September.
