US Census looking for enumerators

Monday, December 28, 2009

GREENCASTLE -- Retired, a college student or unemployed and looking for work?

The United States Census is currently hiring census takers or enumerators to ensure cities, towns and counties in southern Indiana are accurately represented.

A census taker's primary responsibility is to collect census information from residents who have not returned the 2010 census form.

In addition, they explain the purpose of the census and record responses. Census takers earn $12 per hour and work up to 40 hours each week with flexible schedules available; mileage reimbursement is also included.

Census takers will work in their own communities and be paid for training. Testing to become a census taker is now in progress until Jan. 31, 2010. The Putnam County Public Library is a testing site. Hiring will take place in late February with work beginning in March.

Anyone currently on unemployment can easily have it deferred while working for the census. For more information on when the census test can be taken or to apply, call 866-861-2010.

Additional information and a practice test can be found at www.census.gov.

All census takers must pass a security background check. Applicants must be a US citizen; at least 18 years of age; have valid Social Security number; and a valid drivers license. Two forms of identification must be brought to the testing site.

More and more employers are now running a background check on potential employees, even for short term or contract employment. After all, public information is now available cheaply.

If you are looking for a job then it's critical that you know what kind of information is available on you out there.
