2012 Brownell’s Gunsmith Career Fair

Brownell’s (the #1 gunsmithing supplier) is putting on a career fair to give you a chance to meet and get to know gunsmith employers from all across the United States. They are encouraging all current gunsmithing students, recent gunsmith school graduates, and even veteran gunsmiths to attend this 5th annual event that is taking place in Des Moines, Iowa April 27-28, 2012. Even though the actual fair doesn’t start until Friday, the 27th, you might want to get to Des Moines early to take a tour of Brownell’s, which they are offering from 8a.m. to 4p.m. on Thursday, the 26th.

There is no charge for attendees who can bring their resumes and network with potential employers, like custom gun shops, manufacturers, retailers, and service centers. They are also offering seminars which are geared toward career paths for gunsmiths.

Amazingly, there is also no charge for businesses who would like to exhibit at the career fair. In fact, Brownell’s is even throwing in meals! Not only do exhibitors get a table to display on and space to conduct interviews, but the event will also include seminars on business development conducted by industry professionals.

If you’re thinking about going to a gunsmith school, this would be a great event for you to attend, not only for the professional contacts you will make, but also because there are several top-notch gunsmithing schools that are attending. Here is a list of the schools that are signed up so far:
