The US Census Bureau is currently recruiting to hire thousands of temporary part-time census takers for the 2010 Census in the Capital District.
To complete the upcoming address canvassing operation over 1,400 people will need to be hired. According to the Census Bureau, their goal is to have at least 7,000 qualified applicants from which to choose. The pay ranges from $11 to $18.75 per hour. The hours are flexible, and the work is close to home. To apply, call 866-861-2010 toll free, or the local number, 362-2170. The sooner you apply, the sooner you will be hired.
Census taker jobs are excellent for retirees, college students, persons who want to work part-time, persons who are between jobs, or just about anyone who wants to earn extra money while performing an important service for their community.
Every 10 years, a census of our population is conducted. The results help determine your representation in government, as well as how federal funds are spent in your community on things like roads, parks, housing, schools, and public safety. Census takers play a vital role in making sure that everyone is included.
All census takers must be able to speak English, but bilingual skills in English and other languages are needed in communities that have a large number of residents who speak a language other than English. If you have such skills, we encourage you to apply.
Besides good pay, you'll have flexible hours, paid training, and the chance to work within your own community. You'll earn a place in history, as well as work experience you can add to your resume.
