When to Apply for a Census Job

The US Census is a major 10-year counting and analysis project that takes place across the United States and requires many employees. In 2010, it will require a greater number than ever before. While most recruiting for 2009 field operations has ended, limited recruiting continues in select areas. Information on these areas will be provided as it becomes available.  

Thousands are needed for temporary jobs.

Spring 2009 – Census workers nationwide go door-to-door to update addresses . Some will have already quit and will need to be replaced.

Autumn 2009 – Recruitment starts begins for census takers for 2010.

February – March 2010 – Census questionnaires are mailed or delivered.

April 1, 2010 – The official Census Day.

April – July 2010 – Census takers go to all households that did not mail back a completed. Again, some wiorkers will have already quit and will need to be replaced.

To apply for a Census Job click on the link http://www.census.gov/2010censusjobs/howtoapply.php or call toll-free at 1-866-861-2010.

Census takers receive competitive pay on a weekly basis. In addition, you will be reimbursed for authorized mileage and related expenses.

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.

NOTE: With a little bit of Googling I found out that the average salary for census workers jobs in Fayetteville, NC is $38,000 (typical hourly pay is about $15 – depends on the region). Average census workers salaries can vary greatly due to company, location, industry, experience and benefits. Vehicle and related expenses are also covered and workers get paid weekly.
