The leading networking event for the gem and jewellery industry, GIA (Gemological Institute of America) Jewelry Career Fair, returns to New York City on Friday, July 13. Whether you are looking to join the incredible gem and jewellery industry or an established professional making a move, the Jewelry Career Fair has something for everyone. Join GIA at the Javits Center (1E Hall) from 10:00 a.m. – 2:30 p.m. for inspiring panel discussions, new opportunities with leading companies and one-on-one coaching from industry insiders. This event is free and open to the public; anyone interested in attending is urged to register.

“Since the inception of GIA’s Jewelry Career Fair our mission has been to foster networking, opportunity and stimulating discussion,” said Kathryn Kimmel, GIA senior vice president and chief marketing officer, and co-founder of the GIA Jewelry Career Fair. “Between the exceptional panelists, face-to-face career advice and array of recruiters at this year’s event, it is sure to garner success for job seekers.”

Nearly 50 companies, including Lorraine Schwartz, Tiffany & Company, London Jewelers, Diamonds Direct and many more are expected at GIA’s Jewelry Career Fair, looking to hire new talent for positions in manufacturing, gemology, retail and more.

The opening panel “Job Success in Today’s Market” offers Career Fair attendees insight and advice from prominent industry personalities including Wendy Brandes, owner and president of Wendy Brandes Jewelry; Greg Kwiat, chief executive officer at KWIAT; Joel Schechter, chief executive officer at HONORA; and recent GIA graduate and emerging talent, Fallon Bock, diamond quality specialist at Leo Schachter Diamond Group.
