On Friday, February 14, 2020, the NC Works Bus will participate in a special Census Worker Application event, to be held in uptown Greenville. The event will take place from Noon – 7:00pm, at the intersection of Dickinson Avenue and Evans Street, across the street from Sheppard Memorial Library. In advance of the 2020 Census, the U.S. Census Bureau is recruiting thousands of people for temporary jobs across the Nation. This event will utilize the services of the NC Works Bus to help serve as job recruitment fair and information session to all interested in joining the 2020 Census workforce.
Currently, staffed Census worker levels are roughly half of where they need to be, presenting plenty of opportunity for interested applicants to earn extra income through participation in the 2020 Census efforts. Available positions are hourly, part-time, with a competitive pay rate for our area of $16 per hour. There are current job opportunities available for field representatives, supervisors, and office staff.
While this event may be the only in-person opportunity to learn about and apply for jobs with the 2020 Census, there are opportunities online to apply as well. For more information regarding available job opportunities with the U.S. Census Bureau, or 2020 Census information in general, visit www.PittCountyNC.gov/Census2020.
The U.S. Census Bureau is the federal government’s largest statistical agency, dedicated to providing current facts and figures about America’s people, places, and economy. Federal law protects the confidentiality of all individual responses the Census Bureau collects. The U.S. Constitution requires that a count, or census of America’s population be taken each decade. The census provides vital information for local communities, which ultimately help determine important issues such as how many representatives each state gets in Congress, how district boundaries are drawn, and federal and state resources are distributed among the population.
The official “Census Day” for the 2020 Census is Wednesday, April 1, 2020.
