Brownells 75th Anniversary - A Shooting Heritage

5th Annual Gunsmith Career Fair Dates Set by Brownells

Brownells 5th Annual Gunsmith Career Fair will be held April 15 and 16, 2011 at the Des Moines Marriott Downtown in Des Moines, Iowa. The industry-exclusive event is expected to draw more than 200 attendees and 40 employers.

Career and business development seminars are again a huge feature of the event with even more opportunities this year for hands-on learning from guild members and industry professionals. Attendees will be able to interview, on-the-spot, with top companies in the firearm industry and government agencies that are ready to hire! There will be plenty of time to network with potential employers, fellow gunsmiths and exhibitors. Soon-to-graduate gunsmithing students, recent graduates, working gunsmiths, and gun shop owners are all invited to attend, as well as anyone looking to start a career in the gunsmithing profession.

Company CEO Frank Brownell told us, "We're thrilled the event keeps growing the way it is and the seminars just keep getting better. I'm absolutely certain 2011 will be even better still."

Pete Brownell, company president said, "The Gunsmith Career Fair is growing into a must-attend for individuals interested in gunsmithing and improving their career. Many Guild professional gunsmiths are there and it's great to see them sharing their secrets. Learning from them can shorten your learning curve tremendously."
