A UNIQUE OPPORTUNITY: EARN MONEY WHILE
YOU SERVE YOUR COMMUNITY
The Census Bureau needs your help to conduct the 2010
Census. While working on the 2010 Census, you will be
representing your community and they will depend on you to
do your best for them. Help your community by applying for
one of these jobs NOW.
We need local residents for a variety of exciting
opportunities, including interviewing, office administration,
and supervision. A large part of these jobs involve dealing
with the public. Most of the jobs are in the field, and require
you to locate and interview households.
The information you collect is confidential and
must not be disclosed to anyone who has not
sworn to protect Census Bureau information.
If selected, you will attend a paid training session where you
will learn how to complete census forms, how to read
census maps and be provided with census interviewing
techniques. In most cases, your supervisor will train you,
assign and review your work, and answer questions.
WHEN YOU WILL WORK
MOST jobs will be short term (5 to 10 weeks) and ALL jobs
will be temporary. Your most productive hours will vary
based on the type of census operation. For operations that
require contact with the public to complete interviews, your
availability to work when people are home is critical. The late
afternoon, evening, and weekend hours are the most
productive times to work on these operations. For operations
that require you to locate and list housing units, your
availability to work daylight hours will be critical.
You will be paid weekly for hours worked including time
spent in training. Social Security deductions will be taken
from your earning
