To be held on Friday, March 8, 2019, at the Javits Center in New York City, this educational event connects job seekers with opportunities within the gem and jewelry industry.

The co-location of the JA New York Summer Show, the usual venue for GIA’s New York Career Fair, with NY NOW (Aug. 11-14, 2019) means space is limited.

“We’re thrilled we were able to work with GIA on hosting their event in March,” said Drew Lawsky, show director of JA New York Shows and PREMIER. “Our organization has an ongoing tradition of supporting new talent in our industry, and our hosting GIA for their annual Career Fair is an extension of an initiative that is a crucial part of our core values. We have always applauded how much GIA gives back, and it is an honor to support them in this important endeavor.”

“GIA contributes so much to the entire jewelry industry, and its annual Career Fair is a key component in ensuring our industry can continue to thrive,” said David W. Cochran, president and CEO of MJSA. “We’re excited to have our Expo run alongside JA New York and GIA’s fair this spring; there are so many potential synergies that can benefit all three of our organizations.”

Wilkerson Testimonials

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
