Every yera there is a Jewelers cinference I think in the Javitz
center. The Toback fafmily has been very active in it in the past.
At the conference they talk about bench jeweler certification and
carrer opportunities and have a job fair too. It is also a great
resource for people starting out in their own business. I would
suggest calling Toback and asking to talk to Michael and if you can
make it throug all of the hubub that goes on there because it is
always busy and people can get short sometimes. i thinl he might be
able to lead you in the right direction. And you can also look at
the javitz site or online as a last resort.
