“The GIA Career Fair was a great resource for me; in the course of one day I met my current employer and made lasting industry contacts,” said Alison Daley, a GIA graduate now working at the New York Loan Company. “I currently live in New York and work in the famed Diamond District on 47th Street, and I owe much of that to GIA. I highly encourage students and job seekers to make the most of GIA’s Career Fair… you never know where it can lead you.”   GIA’s New York Jewelry Career Fair will take place from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. on July 29 at the Javits Center.
