The Census Bureau is hiring for the upcoming 2020 decennial census and they need you. The U.S. Census Bureau is now recruiting thousands of workers just for jobs available in our area. Staffing of team crews is needed all over the country - several hundred thousand! We are hoping that word of mouth will develop in the communities as more and more applicants share information about their experiences and activities.

All applications are made online. Applicants will go to the website www.2020census.gov/jobs to get started. The application process is easy to use and it allows applicants to apply for a range of positions, as summarized below. You will be asked to enter your name and email to set up your application account. The website will cover the details.

Available jobs:

  • Census takers work in the field. Some field positions require employees to work during the day to see addresses on buildings. Other field positions require interviewing the public, so employees should be available to work when people are usually at home, such as in the evening and on weekends.
  • Clerks perform various administrative and clerical tasks to support various functional areas, including payroll, personnel, recruiting, field operations and support.
  • Office operations supervisors assist in the management of office functions and day-to-day activities in one or more functional areas, including payroll, personnel, recruiting, field operations and support.
  • Census field supervisors conduct fieldwork to support and conduct on-the-job training for census takers and/or to follow-up in situations where census takers have confronted issues, such as not gaining entry to restricted areas.

This is an ideal opportunity for everyone in your community - and all others your presentations may capture. This opportunity offers great pay - flexible hours - weekly pay - paid training!

As you know, the U.S. Constitution sets up a decennial census count (every 10 years) to allow for apportioning the House of Representatives. Each area should be counted and no one should be left out. Also, Federal funds are distributed through the census data collection process - the need for schools, hospitals, road, social services (over 675 billion dollars in funds come to the communities this way!
