Need Cash After the Holidays? The U.S. Census Bureau is Hiring

Christmas has come and gone but the bills from the holidays may still be with you. For those needing some post-holiday cash, this option may be worth investigating.

The U.S. Census Bureau is hiring for the 2020 Census count that begins in some parts of the country this month.

In California, census jobs start at $19 an hour. The work is mostly part time and the days and hours vary depending on need. Hours are flexible and there is paid training and weekly paychecks.

In the San Gabriel Valley, which has been called one of the areas of the country most vulnerable to an undercount, census offices are located in Pasadena and West Covina. The large range of languages spoken in the SGV mean that applicants with special language skills are highly desired for employment.

“Recent high school graduates, veterans, retirees, military spouses, seasonal workers and applicants who are bilingual are highly encouraged to apply,” according to Timothy Olson, Census Bureau associate director for Field Operations. “It’s important we hire people in every community in order to have a complete and accurate census.” 

According to a press release from the census bureau, approximately 500,000 temporary workers are needed throughout the country to facilitate the census count. The selection process for census applicants will begin this month. 

April 1, 2020 is officially Census Day nationwide. By this date, every home in the country will have received an invitation to participate in the count. In May, 2020, census enumerators will begin going door to door to collect information from homes that haven’t responded. In some areas like Alaska and rural Maine door to door canvassing is the only way the census can be conducted.

Enumeration of non-responding households continues through early July. In December, 2020, the Census Bureau will deliver apportionment counts to the President and Congress as required by law. 

In March, 2021, the Census Bureau will send redistricting counts to states. This information is used to redraw legislative districts based on population changes.

More information on census jobs may be found at the census website at https://2020census.gov/en/jobs.html
