From a recruiter:
Currently we only have 5 people that have applied for census taker positions in your city. We are hiring for 12 positions which leaves 7 vacant positions. The positions are for a census taker or supervisor with a pay rate of $18.50 – $20.50 per hour and $.58 per mile. These positions are tentatively scheduled to start mid-late May. Anyone interested must apply online at www.2020census.gov/jobs
With the current situation going on, we are unable to physically go out and actively recruit for these positions which is why I am reaching out to you to help get the word out to your community via your website.
Additional information :
April 1 is Census Day! Be sure to fill out the 2020 Census today by going to 2020Census.gov. The 2020 Census takes just 10 minutes to complete. You can also respond by phone or by paper mail with details available at 2020Census.gov.
We celebrate Census Day on April 1 because that is the reference date when answering Census questions. Be sure to count everyone who usually lives and sleeps in your home as of today. Everyone in your home counts, whether they are relatives, non-relatives, friends, or roommates. Also don’t forget to count all children, particularly those under the age of 5 and those babies who have joined our world on or before April 1.
As public servants at the Department of Commerce, we have a unique opportunity to set an example for the country by ensuring our own households get counted in the 2020 Census. We also need to remind our family, friends, and neighbors of the importance of filling out the 2020 Census.
