2020 Census Jobs Available

The U.S. Census Bureau is recruiting!   Every 10 years since 1790, the United States has undertaken the momentous task of counting all of its residents.  For the 2020 Census, the Bureau is offering  a variety of temporary jobs, including census takers, recruiting assistants, office staff, and supervisory staff. 

The results of this census will help determine our state's representation in Congress, influence legislation, and ensure an  equitable distribution  of more than $675 billion in federal funds, grants, and support to states. These funds and grants are then used for our schools, hospitals, roads, and more, so they may properly serve every last member of our community. 

For more information or to apply visit:  or call 1-855-562-2020.
