Week-Long Census Job Fair Scheduled To Help Fill 3,000 Part Time Positions

1054

By: SNJ Today Staff

LINDENWOLD, N.J. – In preparation for the 2020 Census, the Census Bureau is planning to hire as many as 3,000 part-time workers in Camden County to follow up with households that do not complete the census form voluntarily.

The census job application is fast, convenient, and available online. Most positions pay $16.50 an hour and are ideal for individuals looking to supplement their income or who are looking for flexible, part-time work.

“While the Bureau is expecting to hire 3,000 workers, we will likely need five or six times as many applicants to make sure that all of those positions can be filled,” Freeholder Carmen Rodriguez said in a press release. “Applying is easy and those who get hired will have the ability to work evenings and weekends with extra hours available for those who are successful in the position. This is an excellent opportunity to work alongside your neighbors and to serve your community.”

Interested individuals can apply online now by visiting https://2020census.gov/jobs.

For individuals who have difficulty applying, or who do not have a computer or reliable internet connection at home, the County Freeholder Board will be making available numerous application sites from October 21 to October 26. All sites, during their normal hours of operation, will have staff on-hand to assist individuals with their application and to answer any questions they might have about the application process.
