The U.S. Census Bureau is recruiting thousands of people across the country to assist with the 2020 Census count.
They are hiring for a variety of temporary jobs, including census takers, recruiting assistants, office staff, and supervisory staff. To be eligible, you must be at least 18 years old, have a valid Social Security number, and be a U.S. citizen. These positions provide the perfect opportunity to earn some extra income while helping your community.
