Every ten years, the U.S. Census Bureau is responsible for conducting the nationwide census. While the next census itself will be taken in 2020, the Census Bureau is already recruiting to fill important positions to begin work in August 2019. Individuals interested in applying can go on the 2020Census.gov/jobs website to apply immediately. These jobs have flexible hours and pay $14.50 to $15.50 an hour plus mileage. These positions will be responsible for confirming the addresses of all dwellings well ahead of the 2020 schedule of enumeration (“Census takers”) next year.
