The U. S. Census Bureau will hire thousands of people in the Twin Cities Metro Area between now and next spring. This strong economic shot in the arm is like having several factories open up in this area! Up to a total of approximately 4,000 people will be on staff during peak times.
"This is the largest civilian mobilization of workers in the history of the United States" said Dennis Johnson, Regional Director.
These are good paying, temporary jobs for the field positions of Recruiters, Crew Leaders, Field Supervisors, Census Takers and Census Clerks. Amount of pay depends on position and location. Work related mileage is reimbursed. There may be some opportunities for advancement.
Positions are available in every community.
The U. S. Census Bureau encourages interested persons to apply for these jobs by calling the Toll Free Jobs Line at 1-866-861-2010.

Design a poster to encourage participation in the 2010 Census in Rice County, Minnesota. Submit your design by Feb. 22, 2010 to be eligible for a $200 prize, to be announced March 1, 2010.
Since federal and state funding for many programs is calibrated to census numbers, accurate counts provide equitable funding. Yet many immigrants, and those in temporary housing, are not counted.
The Winning Poster Design will be printed and widely distributed around Rice County during March 2010, when forms are distributed for the April deadline.
Content: Text and images will encourage all residents to fill in the census form and be counted. The census aims to count everyone regardless of legal status and results are confidential. Languages: English, Spanish or Somali. Design and message should be cultural appropriate to the target group.
Inspiration: Consult poster designs in the Carleton College Art Gallery exhibition, Latin American Posters, on view through March 11, 2010, and, Sampling the Census: Snapshots of the American Population, 1880-2010. Census Publications in Gould Library Government Documents, on view in Carleton’s Gould Library.
For more information on the Census outreach effort, and to view sample posters by Census Bureau designers, visit the Census 2010 website.
Design Submission Deadline: February 22
