The 2007 GIA Career Fair will take place on Friday, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York City. More than 50 companies will be recruiting for a variety of employment opportunities—including appraising, design, marketing, manufacturing, and sales.
Career Fair is for first-time job seekers or seasoned jewelry professionals. Attendees have the chance to apply for positions with multiple employers and meet representatives from the industry’s best-known companies, including as Zale Corp., David Yurman, De Beers, Tiffany & Co., Christie’s, and Home Shopping Network.
Besides the interviewing opportunities, job seekers can get one-on-one career coaching and attend seminars, workshops, and panel discussions led by the industry’s top business leaders. For recruiters, Career Fair attracts hundreds of people already targeted on the jewelry industry, many of whom are professionally trained.
In addition to the July 27 event in New York, Career Fair will also be held Oct. 19 at GIA’s Robert Mouawad Campus in Carlsbad, Calif. Like New York, the Carlsbad event will feature a recruiting area, career coaching, and panel sessions.
