As part of its annual Jewelry Career Fair & Open House, GIA will be open to receiving public entry on October 9 at its Carlsbad, CA world headquarters. This is the one time during a year when GIA’s campus is open to the public without appointment; apart from being a free visit to all guests and job seekers.

The event will include almost 30 companies scouting for job seekers in positions from retail to design and manufacturing. Job seekers can interact with a career coach specializing in their field of interest, on a one-to-one basis.

A finely curated selection of nearly 200 works of jewelry and objet d’art by 40 members of the American Jewelry Design Council (AJDC) that make up the Institute’s featured exhibition, “Variations on a Theme: 25 Years of Design from the AJDC,” will be on display. This apart, the guests can also view the world’s largest gemological library, home to the Cartier Rare Book Repository; take in gem and jewelry education demos such as GIA’s Jewelry Design & Technology program; and hear from notable personalities in the jewelry industry including award-winning designers, innovative entrepreneurs and top executives.
