Census Bureau Recruits Students for Part-time Job Opportunities
Looking for temporary work this spring with flexible hours, any day of the week? Want to connect with and support your community, to ensure they’ll be properly covered when funds are distributed by the federal government? The U.S. Census Bureau has an opportunity for you.
The census is a nationwide survey taken once every 10 years to quantify the population of the United States, and collect data on income, age and ethnicity. This information is used to determine how many seats in the U.S. House of Representatives each state should have, how federal funds will be allocated by state, local and federal lawmakers every year for 10 years for critical public services like hospitals and healthcare clinics, bridges and roads, schools, fire protection and other first responders, and how the boundaries of legislative districts will be drawn.
Job opportunities include being an office clerk, census field supervisor, recruiting assistant and census taker. Those hired can expect to be working from March to June 2020.
The Census Bureau is actively recruiting college students — as well as faculty and staff interested in supplemental, part-time work — said Rasoul Fadavi, partnership specialist with the Los Angeles Regional Census Center. People who are bilingual in English and another language spoken in their communities are encouraged to apply.
Since this is a federal job, applicants must provide their Social Security number and a valid email address. There will also be a background check, Fadavi said. The recruitment period will run through February.
