Good News In Employment - The US Census Bureau is Hiring

All Economic News Today Isn't Bad

Amid all the bad news we read about today's economy; stock's plunge, leaving the Dow below 7600, Deflation, Disaster or just a nice discount, NAR forecasts further declines.

I came across some news that is good. Finally.

 

The US Census Bureau is hiring

The US Census Bureau is recruiting temporary part-time census takers for the 2010 Census and according to the Census Bureau:

"The pay is good, the hours are flexible, and the work is close to home. 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 the Census Bureau conducts a census of our population. It is important work as the results determine representation in government and "as well as how federal funds are spent in your community on things like roads, parks, housing, schools, and public safety. As a census taker, you'll play a vital role in making sure that everyone is included."

 

What Are The Duties of The Census Taker

Census takers perform two main kinds of work; updating address lists (address canvassing to take place Spring of 2009) and conducting interviews (interviewing operations to take place in the spring and summer of 2010).

 

Interested in applying?

Most hiring will take place February through May, 2009 and will hire 140,000 nationally (address canvassing). The Census Bureau will hire another 1.4 million people in 2010 (interviewing operations) to follow-up with people who fail to mail back the form.

Go to How to Apply at the Census Bureau's website or you can also call the Census Bureau's national jobs line at 866-861-2010.

This is a good thing, those whom are unemployed at least will be able to have a few months of work.

That's true. It's good news for all the people who have lost their jobs recently.

Julie and Brian - I agree, this is a good thing. Some employment is hopefully better than no employment.
