About Challenger Outplacement Services

As an outplacement firm, Challenger, Gray & Christmas, Inc. provides leadership, job search, and career transition coaching to displaced employees. The firm’s services are typically available only to those who receive outplacement as a benefit from their former employer. The two-day hotline is the only time the public can take advantage of Challenger’s job search expertise.

The hotline does not place callers with new employers, nor can our experts review individual resumes or point callers to specific opportunities. However, our coaches can give callers time-tested, expert strategies and advice. The hotline affords anyone the opportunity to get some guidance from our experts in the job search field.
