GIA’s Jewelry Career Fair will return to New York City on Monday, July 25, 2016. Dozens of gem and jewelry companies will be looking to hire skilled and motivated professionals at every career stage. The free event is expected to draw crowds similar to last year’s event in New York, which attracted recruiters from 48 companies and more than 600 job seekers.
The recruiting and education event – which is free and open to the public – will take place at the Javits Center from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. In addition to hiring opportunities for gem and jewelry careers, there will be one-on-one career coaching with some of the industry’s brightest names.
Susan Jacques, president and CEO of GIA, will moderate the opening panel “Job Success in Today’s Market.” The panel of industry leaders will include Rahul Kadakia, International Head of Jewelry for Christie’s; Steven Lagos, Founder and Chief Creative Director for LAGOS; Natalie Tjaden of Jewelry Television; and Yancy Weinrich, Senior Vice President of JCK.
