The Gemological Institute of America (GIA) has announced the agenda for the 18th GIA Jewelry Career Fair being held at the Jacob Javits Center in New York City on Friday, July 25, 2008.

The gem and jewelry industry considers GIA Jewelry Career Fair much more than a traditional job fair – it's an all-embracing event that includes expert speakers and panelists, one-on-one mentoring, networking and workshops. Job seekers can learn how to present themselves, their ideas, and their qualifications compellingly and competitively. The schedule for the all-day event includes:

• Working to Win Panel
• Career Fair will begins as jewelry industry executives from Christie's Americas, Borsheims, Lieberfarb and LAGOS share secrets and tips about how to create success in the industry, with personal stories and real-life illustrations.

• Career Coaching
• Career coaching presents a remarkable opportunity for job-seekers to work with successful industry leaders - 27 in total. Mentors will work one-on-one with participants to help sharpen their focus and offer career guidance based on experience, training and personality.

• Immigration Law Workshop
• The GIA Jewelry Career Fair offers legal representatives who will provide advice on how to acquire a work visa and apply cultural knowledge to a position in the United States.

• Moving From Dream to Reality
• A panel of up-and-coming industry elite leaders will share their career experiences and how to achieve similar success.

• Jewelry Design: One Passion, Many Paths
• Some of the industry's most creative designers share how they are creating lasting and lucrative careers in the creative side of jewelry.

• Marketing Yourself for Success
• Participants can learn job-hunt fundamentals that will have them stand out from other job seekers and get noticed by employers.

The GIA Jewelry Career Fair in New York will take place on Friday, July 25 from 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. at the Jacob Javits Convention Center, prior to the JA Show. The fair is free and open to anyone interested in a career in gems and jewelry.
