A message from the U.S. Census Bureau...

2010 CENSUS JOB OPPORTUNITIES
The U.S. Census Bureau is recruiting temporary, part-time census takers for the 2010 Census. These short-term jobs offer good pay, flexible hours, paid training, and reimbursement for authorized work-related expenses, such as mileage incurred while conducting Census work. Best of all, census takers work right in their own communities. The Census Bureau is an Equal Opportunity Employer.

Census taker jobs are excellent for people who want to work part-time, those who are between jobs, or just about anyone who wants to earn extra money while performing an important service for their community.

THOUSANDS NEEDED IN OUR FIVE-COUNTY AREA
Conducting the Census is a huge undertaking. Thousands of persons are needed in Jefferson, Kenosha, Racine, Walworth and Waukesha Counties. A variety of important field and office positions are required. Most Census field positions require a valid driver's license and use of a vehicle. However, use of public transportation may be authorized in certain areas.

YOUR COMMUNITY IS COUNTING ON AN ACCURATE CENSUS
Every 10 years, the Census Bureau takes a snapshot of our population, determining how many people reside within the nation's borders. The results help determine your representation in government, 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 counted.

DO YOU HAVE BILINGUAL SKILLS?
All Census takers must be able to speak English, but people who have bilingual skills are needed in communities where a large number of residents primarily speak other languages. If you have the appropriate language skills and cultural knowledge to communicate well in your community, we strongly encourage you to apply for those positions.
