GIA Mini Jewelry Career Fair Returns to Las Vegas



The Gemological Institute of America announced Thursday that it will host its second GIA Mini Jewelry Career Fair in Las Vegas on Sunday, June 6 during the JCK Show.

The Mini Jewelry Career Fair, sponsored by JCK Events, is a condensed version of the Institute’s popular career coaching and job search events that have helped place candidates in the jewelry industry for the last 19 years. A recruiting area for employers interested in meeting the industry’s prospects in person has been added this year.

The career coaches, all notable industry leaders, will provide one-on-one sessions with attendees, offering tips for success in specialized categories including: design, career information, networking, resume review, and business start-up and entrepreneurship. Each private session will last 15 minutes.

The career fair will be held from 10 a.m.-1:30 p.m., with doors opening at 9:30 a.m. for career coaching sign-ups. It will take place on the 4th floor of the Venetian Conference Center in the Zeno ballrooms. The event is free and open to anyone. Participation as a recruiter or listing jobs is also free.For further questions contact Anna Hayman, GIA Career Services advisor, at anna.hayman@gia.edu.
