All Economic News Today Isn't Bad
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.
