Next week, Challenger, Gray & Christmas will give job seekers a special gift for the holidays.

The consulting firm will hold its 25th annual national job search call-in on Monday and Tuesday. Job seekers can receive free advice from professional career counselors by calling (312) 422-5010. The event will last from 9 am to 5 pm CST on both days.

This year, the event will feature dedicated lines for current and former military personnel, who often confront a number of challenges. For instance, they may have difficulty explaining how the skills they gained in the military translate to the civilian workforce, the firm notes. Also, many of them have little experience with traditional job searches.

One crucial strategy for all job seekers is networking, emphasizes John Challenger, CEO of Challenger Gray. People also should consider looking for jobs in a wide range of industries, companies and cities.
