JA Launches Careers Outreach

Jewelers of America (JA) is launching "Careers in the Jewelry Industry," an ambitious outreach initiative to promote the jewelry industry as a viable career choice among job seekers from outside the trade. The program is aimed at high school and junior college students as well as adults who are changing careers or re-entering the workforce. The initiative will include a guidebook describing 10 different career paths within the industry: sales associate, manager, bench jeweler, mass manufacturer, wholesaler/importer, appraiser, watchmaker, designer, laboratory grader, and educator. The guide will also be available in video and CD-ROM format and will be distributed to 9,000 high schools, 900 junior colleges, and 1,500 adult career counseling centers. Career counseling events have been scheduled in 7,000 high schools, 500 junior colleges, and 900 adult career-counseling centers. Jewel
