U.S. Census Bureau is Hiring Field Staff for 2020 Census

Post Date:08/07/2018 1:16 PM

The U.S. Census Bureau is hiring several field representatives in North Carolina, including our region.   

The Census Bureau conducts more than 130 surveys every year. Its ability to conduct continuous surveys — other than the once-a-decade population count — depends on survey takers.  Regional offices are currently hiring these workers. 

While many workers are needed for the 2020 Census, they need field representatives for other ongoing surveys.

Census workers' benefits include flexible hours, meeting people and working outside of the office environment.

Field representatives perform a variety of vital functions, such as updating address lists and maps; conducting interviews with residents in assigned areas; explaining the purpose of the census interview; and answering residents' questions.

Hours of work for field positions will vary - some require employees to work during the day to see addresses on buildings, while others require interviewing the public, usually in the evening and weekends.
