The Fields Corner Branch of the Boston Public Library is hosting a U.S. 2020 Census Job Recruitment Day on Wednesday, December 11, beginning at 1:00pm – 3:00pm, at 1520 Dorchester Ave., Dorchester.
U.S. Census Bureau staff will be available to assist residents interested in applying for temporary field positions for the 2020 Census through the 2020census.gov/jobs website. All positions are temporary, part time and offer paid training, weekly pay and flexible hours, including daytime, evenings and weekends.
The 2020census.gov/jobs website allows applicants to apply for a range of positions, including census takers (or enumerators), recruiting assistants, office operations supervisors, census field supervisors, and clerks by completing a single application online
The Census Bureau is committed to hiring people who are familiar with their community as well as people who can speak another language in addition to English. Available jobs include:
• Census takers visit households to collect data for the 2020 Census. These positions require interviewing the public, so applicants must be available to work when people are usually at home such as during evenings and on weekends.
• Recruiting assistants travel throughout geographic areas to visit with community-based organizations, attend promotional events and conduct other recruiting activities.
• Census field supervisors train and oversee a team of census takers, monitor work progress, and follow up on issues in the field.
Qualified applicants will be placed in a pool for the 2020 Census positions in their area. Applications will remain active and updateable throughout the 2020 Census recruiting and hiring period. For more information, contact 1-855-JOB-2020 and select option three. Applicants may also contact the Federal Relay Service at 1-800-877-8339.
