Indiana State University's 21st annual Criminology and Criminal Justice Career Fair is set from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. April 1 in the Hulman Memorial Student Union Dede I and II.

More than 40 agencies ranging from local to federal will be represented at the fair. The Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Secret Service and the Drug Enforcement Administration as well as the Madison (Wis.) Police Department and Dane County (Wis.) Sheriff's Office will have booths recruiting at the fair. Local agencies scheduled to have booths are the Terre Haute Police Department, the Council on Domestic Abuse and the Vigo County Sheriff's Office.

Last year about 400 students attended the career fair.

"The Criminology and Criminal Justice Career Fair affords the university and criminology department an opportunity to showcase our students," said Cary Dohner, visiting professor and career fair coordinator. "The career fair allows the students the opportunity to network with the premier agencies within our field. It also gives the agencies an opportunity to see, firsthand, the caliber of criminal justice professionals that are being produced at ISU."

The career fair is open to the public for those interested in job or internship opportunities.
