Alumni of the Gemological Institute of America can now stay in contact with each other through a recently launched online directory. It also offers potential customers and employers the opportunity to verify the credentials of participating GIA alumni. The directory provides immediate verification of the training GIA graduates have completed and serves as a tool for networking within the industry.
The directory can be found at www.gia.edu in the “Alumni Association” section. Listings are available free of charge to those who join the alumni association, and the database is updated weekly. For information, e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
