GIA jewelry career fair opens in Carlsbad
September 25, 2013 by Sarah
The Gemological Institute of America will be hosting the Jewelry Career Fair and Open House at its headquarters in Carlsbad California shortly.
Non-profit organizations will bring potential employees together with jewelry and gem companies. The campus of the Gemological Institute of America is open for one day during the year and the event is promoted beforehand, possibly with the assistance of catalog printing from a local company.
The event features representatives of a variety of companies looking for skilled employees in design, marketing, and sales. Attendees at the fair will be admitted free of charge and will have an exclusive preview of the all-jewelry exhibit by Hutton Wilkinson and Tony Duquette – the first ever.
Titled ‘More is More: Tony Duquette – Hutton Wilkinson Jewelry’, the exhibit will be previewed the evening prior to the career fair. The Gemological Institute of America has been in existence for 82 years and has educated professionals in the gem and jewelry sector worldwide. The nonprofit institution has provided education programs, discoveries made through research, and laboratory work to ensure that the public’s trust in diamonds, pearls, and gemstones is guaranteed.
Some of the most well-known gemstones and diamonds in the world have been graded by the Gemological Institute of America, including the Taylor-Burton Diamond. The first Jewelry Career Fair was held in 1991 in Santa Monica, California. Over 40 events have been held since that time in Carlsbad, New York, India, and Las Vegas.
October 11 will be the day of the event.
