Challenger Offers Free Job-Search Assistance

Challenger, Gray & Christmas is gearing up for its annual job-search call in.

The global outplacement firm will suspend normal business operations on Thursday, December 27th and Friday, December 28th. Professional coaches will take calls from across the country, providing advice and strategies for discouraged job seekers.

“It’s a great time of year to look, the holiday season.”

John Challenger is CEO of Challenger, Gray & Christmas.

“Every time you sit down with someone who is the person at that company you’d report to, you have a chance to get the job, and those people are more available right now. And you have to assume that some of your competition is just taking the holiday season off, thinking there probably isn’t much going on right now. So, those people who are working hardest at their search now get a real edge.”

This year marks the 27th annual job search call-in for Challenger. To participate, call (312) 422-5010 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. on December 27th or 28th.
