CG&C offering free job advice

Dec 21, 2011 - 11:27 AM
As the job market continues to recover at a snail's pace and millions of Americans struggle to overcome long-term unemployment, global outplacement firm Challenger, Gray & Christmas Inc. will suspend normal business operations for two days so that its staff of professional counselors can provide free job-search advice to callers from across the country.

The firm's 26th annual two-day national job-search call-in takes place from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. CST Dec. 27 and 28. The telephone number is (312) 422-5010 and job seekers can get more information about the call-in at the firm's website. Challenger expects the job market to continue its slow but steady improvement in 2012. Planned job-cut announcements tracked monthly by CG&C are up slightly from 2010, but still well below recession levels.

Through the end of November, employers announced 564,297 planned job cuts, compared to 497,969 over the same period in 2010. In contrast, employers announced 1,242,936 by November 2009.
