To help the nation’s job seekers overcome the obstacles and improve their chances of success, global outplacement consultancy Challenger, Gray & Christmas will suspend normal business operations on December 27 and 28 to provide free job search advice to callers from anywhere in the U.S. The firm’s 26th annual two-day national free job search call-in will run from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. CST both days. The telephone number is 312-422-5010. Job seekers can get more information about the call-in at http://challengeratworkblog.blogspot.com/. A new component of this year’s call-in will be a group of job-search counselors dedicated to taking calls from current and former military personnel, including veterans, those approaching the end of their period of service, reservists and any other members of the military conducting a job search.
U.S. executive placement firm Challenger, Gray & Christmas said it would provide free job-search counseling by telephone for two days at the end of the year. “As the job market continues to recover at a snail’s pace and millions of Americans struggle to overcome long-term unemployment,” the company plans to pull its counselors off of their regular duties on December 27-28 through the hours of 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., and put them on the phones for the company’s 27th annual national job-search call-in day.
Information on the free phone-in counseling for job seekers can be found at the company’s Web site at www.challengergray.com. The telephone number for the two-day event is 312-422-5010.
