Census Bureau Looking for Local Part-Time Workers
By edhat staff
The U.S. Census Bureau will pay $21/hour for part-time workers to collect data for the upcoming 2020 count.
With the holidays now over, people are encouraged to take advantage of the many job opportunities the Census has available to replenish their wallets. They are offering thousands of jobs, but applications must be submitted soon in order to be considered for a spring start date.
The Census survey asks residents to answer questions about how many people are living in the home, their ages, race, home ownership, and more. Government funding for the local community is based on these answers.
After the census release date, employees will knock on doors and follow up on incomplete surveys.
Applicants must be 18 years of age or older, be a U.S. citizen or be legally able to work in the U.S., and have a valid e-mail account.
The government is offering compensation starting at $21 per hour in the Santa Barbara area and includes flexible schedules, weekly paychecks, and paid training.
Applicants can apply online at 2020census.gov/jobs.
