Steve Hoback with NRA's Training Department was in Des Moines, Iowa last weekend attending the Brownell's 5th Annual Gunsmith Career Fair. Hoback was there representing NRA's Gunsmithing Schools program, but the Career Fair featured a variety of seminars geared towards career and business development, including Ron Power, a renowned gunsmith and owner of Grand Masters L.L.C. Power spoke of the topic of "Responsible, Professional Gunsmith Opportunities."
Over 150 gunsmithing school students and experience gunsmiths attended the event on April 15th and 16th, as well as 40 industry employers. Attendees were able to interview with these employers and gain the knowledge and contacts to advance their careers in the firearms industry.
"The Gunsmith Career Fair is growing into a must-attend for individuals interested in gunsmithing and improving their careers," said Brownell's President and NRA Board of Directors Member Pete Brownell in a press release.
The next event will be held in April of 2012, so check www.gunsmithcareerfair.com for updates and information on how to attend next year's fair. For more information on NRA's Gunsmithing Schools program, contact Steve Hoback at firstname.lastname@example.org.
