Gemological Institute of America's (GIA) will organize a jewllery career fair on July 29, 2005.

New Four of the gem and jewelry industry's all-stars are scheduled to address the opening “Working to Win” session of GIA's New York Jewelry Career Fair, which takes place July 29, 9 a.m.–3 p.m., at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center.

The speakers are Mary Forté, president and CEO of Zale Corp.; Glenn Rothman, CEO and founder of Hearts On Fire Company; Ofer Azrielant, CEO of Jewelry.com; and Rahul Kadakia, senior vice president and head of the Jewelry Department at Christie's. They will offer job seekers insights into their success and tips on how to build a career in the industry.

“They are really pleased and appreciative that these highly accomplished professionals have volunteered their time to speak at Career Fair,” said Kathryn Kimmel, GIA's vice president of Marketing and Public Relations and a co-founder of the event. “They each represent an important aspect of the industry, and they have an inspiring and unique story to tell. I'm sure everyone who attends will gain a clearer understanding of this fascinating industry.”

Jewelry Career Fair, the industry's largest one-day recruiting event, is the perfect opportunity for employers to meet candidates in an atmosphere that is conducive to success. Recruiting takes place from 10:30 a.m. to 2:45 p.m. Lux Bond & Green President John Green said Career Fair is “the premier industry event for recruiting talented future jewelry employees. We've been very pleased with the quality of the individuals.”
