CHICAGO, Dec. 26 (UPI) -- Outplacement firm Challenger, Gray & Christmas in Chicago said it would be open for free call-in counseling for job seekers Thursday and Friday.

The firm said it would host its 27th annual call-in service for "anyone who is looking for a job, whether they are unemployed, wanting to switch jobs or re-entering the job market after a long absence."

Challenger, Gray & Christmas specializes in finding jobs for people who are sent to the firm by former employers. But for two days of the year for the last quarter of a century, the firm has opened its phone lines to one and all as a free service.

"Call-in is the only time that anyone can get help from the firm's professional job search coaches," the firm said in a statement.

The number for free job seeking advice is 312-422-5010. The phone-in job fair runs Dec. 27-28 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. CST.
