Van Nuys job fair draws big crowd

VAN NUYS, Calif. The job fair attracted both students and people from off-campus.

"I've been out of work for about two weeks so far," said job seeker Christian Jarquin. "I've been going on the Internet, that's where I found out about this job fair."

There were plenty of jobs available. Representatives from 12 different government agencies, including the /*Los Angeles Police Department*/ and the F.B.I., were at the fair looking for qualified applicants.

With so many of the openings involving law enforcement, one qualification is an absolute must: A clean record.

"No felony convictions," said Allan Krescent, with L.A. Valley College.

He added, "You must be a United States citizen. Most of the agencies will accept registered aliens, but in order to be appointed as a peace officer, you need to be a citizen."

The job fair runs through 3 p.m. Wednesday. If you missed this one, Valley College is planning another fair in the coming weeks.
