As unemployment continues to rise and economy shows no significant signs of improvement, one business is getting ready to hire 1.4 million employees. The business we are talking about is the federal government. The government will be conducting a 2020 census and will need the assistance of 1.4 million people in order to complete collecting all the necessary information for the census on time. The job of a census taker will be temporary lasting around 10 months and will pay as much as $22 per hour. Additionally this job will offer paid training, flexible hours, and reimbursement for work related expenses. If you are currently searching for work, then this might be the perfect opportunity for you to get involved. Just follow the steps presented here and you will begin working for the government as a census taker.
Determine how many hours you will be able to work.
The hiring for census takers will begin in the spring of 2020, so plan your work schedule accordingly. If you are currently unemployed then you will be able to commit as many hours as the census bureau will ask of you. However, if you are currently employed you need to make sure you can handle a second job by arranging your work schedule accordingly. Remember that working two jobs is not going to be a walk in the park and will put some significant stress on you.

The census bureau will let you know whether you got the job or not shortly after you complete the testing session.
To increase your chances of getting the census taker job answer all the questions on the test favorably and make sure you provide the correct information about yourself. Be honest about everything and you will certainly get hired for this job.
